The Graphics Fairy - DIY: 12 Easy Image Transfer Methods for DIY Projects

Mod Podge Photo Tile Transfers After reading several blogs about photo transfers with Mod Podge, I was committed. The only problem was I didn’t have any random wood or canvas, and I try my hardest to not buy anything unless I absolutely have to have it. I did have some tile magnets on my fridge that could be much cuter, and there I had it! Want to make your own? Here’s how: Supplies:Mod Podge Paint brush or spongePicture printed off a laser jet printer, or a photo copy of a picture, cut to size Tile, or wood or canvas Spray bottle or squirt gun, or something that can spray small amounts of water Patience!!!! 2. 3. If the picture starts tearing, stop and let it dry. 5. My tile of C has white fabric Mod Podged on first, then the image was Mod Podged on, and dried. This magnet had paper already Mod Podged on it, and I just layered this picture on top for sake of time and sanity, which is why it has a terraced look.

DIY Picture Tiles - You Will Never Buy a Photo Frame Again Lately I’ve been having this huge urge to decorate the house. This is big news. I do not decorate. Arguably, one of the reasons why is because I. absolutely. hate. to. buy. mass. produced. decor. Anyway, this extends to photo frames. Nope. Long story short, I discovered this method of transferring my photos cheaply, quickly, and beautifully to something uncommon and unique. Tiles. The only thing that’s not particularly crunchy about this is that it uses Modge Podge or similar (and I’m not sure what’s in Modge Podge). It’s just grainy and doesn’t dry clearly. Boo. BUT, if you can overlook that one minor issue, I think you’ll love this. And it will be glorious. Here’s how you do it. First, you need to go to Home Depot, Lowes, or something like it. (FYI, I found that Lowes prices on tiles were cheaper than Home Depot. I like the stone tiles, because they have texture. So you pick out your tiles in the sizes you want. And then you get home and gather what you need. Cut them out. Go go go! Love me?

Transferring Photos and Scrapbook Pages to Marble Tiles Transferring your scrapbook pages or family photos onto ceramic, stone, or marble tiles allows you to create gorgeous home decor or precious gifts. To begin, you will need to select your photos and have them digitally color copied onto special transfer paper found in any of the Tilano Fresco Transfer Kits or the Marble Coaster Kit. Ink jet prints will NOT work with this process. The transfer paper is certified safe for color copiers and the kit comes with a certificate that you may need to show at your local copy center. Here you can see the pictures that I chose and also the copy that I had made. You can also use copies of scrapbook pages or digitally editted photos so that you can add text. Be sure to check out more transfer projects in the Scrapbook Page and Photo Transfer Gallery.

Pinspiration: Wood Photo Transfer Like all of you I am completely obsessed with Pinterest. I would call this a sickness but for all the time I spend on Pinterest, I get just as much out of it. Countless recipes, DIY ideas and great inspiration for my home, knitting and of course all things baby and maternity. Seriously check this talented lady's video out if you want to make this. Here is how mine turned out. I had the hardware store cut the boards in 81/2 x 11 pieces and then I sanded them so the corners were soft yet still rustic. One thing I learned the hard way is that you have to print your photos on a good quality laserjet printer. Here is a close-up of the mod podge and gel medium needed for this project. Next I coated my board in gel medium. Then carefully place your image upside down on the gel. After you let the wood block set overnight or 6-8 hrs. Soak the image in water using the rag. Then rub the paper off and watch your image come to life. This is one of my final pieces. I haven't hung mine on the wall.

Free Photo Tile Tutorial from Fabric Envy I love to take pictures! I picked up a real camera (by that I mean a nice DSLR) in 2006 and have been hooked ever since. From the moment I heard the first shutter actuation I couldn't put the thing down! I wanted to take classes right away but because my hubby worked full time and went to law school in the evenings it wasn't possible. I started my photography business, Your Every Color Photography (named after one of my all time favorite songs by Train) four years ago and have enjoyed it so much! So why the heck am I telling you all this? Okay enough with my rambling! There's really not much to it for these tiles. Here are the basic instructions: You can download the PDF Here. If you want to add embellishments like ribbon or scrapbook paper just cut them to size, and keep them from falling off by using hot glue or double sided stick tape on the back of your tile. The image below is one I took of the Salt Lake Temple a couple years ago. Enjoy and Happy Valentines Day!
