More UTEE!! Instant Art Transfers in Memory Glass Frames! ;)

More projects from my Art Day with my bud, Sherre!! :)
I have done Instant Art Transfers with UTEE before. Suze has a tutorial on her website here: Instant Art Transferz
I decided to try a little twist. Now, I'm sure that some of you out there have already done this, but I was excited to try something new! :) :) :)
Instead of using a cookie cutter, I decided to use a Memory Glass Frame!! I was really happy with the outcome!! Voila! Instant Mother's Day gift! :) :)
-----------------------------------
I used Laser copies of some old family photos. After washing the paper off the back (NO, I did NOT get all of the white fuzzies off.......) and letting the piece dry, I painted the back with a thick layer of Iridescent White Acrylic paint.
------------------------------------
Here is my first result. Whatta great looking coupla kids, huh??!! Get a load of our first dog!!! :)
I did decide to do a couple of pieces with some cookie cutters as well. I finished the same way with the acrylic paint on the back. I think I will get a small frame and mount these for a wall hanging.
((Remember!!! "Clear" UTEE is not inherently clear. It has an amber tone. The longer you let it cook, the more amber it will get. So, if you want a "clear" looking piece, you must pour your UTEE right after it melts!!))
Also decided that I would try a collage piece! Why not?! I just layered torn pieces of images, laid the frame over them and poured the UTEE on top. I think this has great possibilities for some very fun projects!!! :)

Comments always welcome!!! :)
