Courage

This weeks word is Courage, and the challenge was to use an image transfer in your art somewhere. After many tries, I am thinking I should have gone with a smaller transfer, and not try to do my main image for the transfer.  As you can see there is some tears in my image, but it was the best I could do, and there are some things I have learned from my experience. One is to burnish, burnish, burnish, and also to make sure the gel medium is totally dry before you start to peel the image away, and lastly I will not work on watercolor paper, but a smoother paper that doesn't absorb as much moisture and tend to peel away as you rub.  I suppose it is all OK, since the page is just for me in my art journal. A great place for all these experiments. I guess I am being courageous by sharing my page. :)
