Creating a Make-up Case with Image Transfer

The good thing about Mixed media techniques, is that you can use everything you have at your fingertips, and you can do all kinds of jobs.

A month ago, I launched my collection of digital stamps “Cecily Worlds”, a project I’ve been working a long time and will come out little by little.

Fabrics, digital stamp, printer, gel medium, beads, flowers, stickles, etc


* First I used one of my digital stamps and paint it with photoshop. Then I printed as a mirror image to make the transfer.

* Then I searched several scraps of fabric and I cut the pieces to form my makeup case.

* I put a generous layer of gel medium on fabric and over the printed image.

* Carefully I put the picture face down onto the fabric and pressed to stick it everywhere.

* Then let it dry for 24 hours. (You can also use a heat gun).

* You must wet the paper with a sponge or “flus flus”
* You have to remove all paper using fingertips gently.
* At the end I decorated a little: A string of beads, some dots with Perfect Pearls, some Prima flowers with a brad … and everything you want.

* Then I sewed the different pieces of fabric, I’ve lined and I put a zipper, and ready. Now I have my custom makeup case.

My name is Cecilia Sanchez (CeciScrap) and I live in Málaga, Spain. I am married and we have three gorgeous sons. They inspire me every day with their crazy ideas.

In 2006, a few months after birth my twins, I discovered scrapbooking, digital first and then the traditional. I love to do 30X30 pages, cards and mini albums, and for a while now I am fascinated with the Art Journal and Mixed Media, and I do not imagine scrapbooking without getting my hands dirty.

I am inspired by everyday things, feelings … The art journal is a real diary for me, because sometimes I need to express feelings with colors and shapes.

I love learning and discovering new techniques and materials.
