Thanksgiving Image Transfer and Freebie - Grateful for YOU My Friends!!!

I am extremely grateful for all my friends, and I wanted to express it today of all days. Especially in times like this when times are tough, it's when friends band together that we make life better. I am so terribly grateful for the gift of friendship from each of you. I wish everyone, even if you are not in the U.S., many blessings, and a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

A few things to share today. I made this layout, using the vintage turkey ad that I am giving away as a freebie below. I did the image transfer technique with gel medium.

  • Draw collage pattern on cardstock
  • Cut scraps of patterned paper to fit collage and adhere
  • Use rubon stitches over seams
  • For image transfer, thin layer of gel medium on layout. Thin layer on image you want to transfer. Put the image face down on layout. Adhere. Rub down. Allow to dry completely for transfer to work, overnight or use heat embossing tool. When dry, spritz with water. Rub edges for film to come off and leave image on your layout.
  • On sticker, use glitter adhesive on monogram. Sprinkle german glass glitter on top. Shake off excess.
  • Add extra embellishmeh

And here is a new page in my Wreck This Journal, "Scrub This Page." I pasted down some scraps from my layout above. Then I used a damp steel wool on these pages. Then I finished with the word "Wonder", some rub ons, and letter stickers. The texture from the steel wool doesn't come across that well, but I like how it looks on the scrapbook paper.

And some decor from my home...
