The Official Playing with Image Transfers Book Trailer is Here!

Playing With Image Transfers Book Trailer from Courtney Cerruti on Vimeo.

Now that Playing with Image Transfers has been out and about for a week, I've had a moment to think about what an incredible journey its been! I am continuously inspired by the students and friends who show me how great beauty can be achieved with the simple techniques and methods of transfers. Thank you all!

Just a reminder, if you instagram, follow me @ccerruti and #PlayingWithImageTransfers if you'd like to share a project or ask a question. I am addicted to instagram and love sharing and finding inspiration there.

Also, I'll be selecting 5 winners who leave a review on Amazon of the book to receive an Image Transfer Kit just in time for some hand crafting this Holiday! Be sure to leave a review in order to win!!!

Image Transfers on Everything

A fun little collection of image transfer projects from the book, and from classes. Its amazing how versatile image transfers are. I find that I use them on paper in quick correspondence, in gift wrap, on fabric, on wood, on metal on anything almost!  They can be immediate are spontaneous or the base of a mixed media piece as just one of many layers. They more I play, the more I love them.

Drawings on Totes and Tees

Having a lot of fun drawing these days. I've been making so many of these little ladies at night. They are quick and fun to sketch up and I just love them. Added them to Society6 to see what they would look like large and on other items.... verdict? I ordered myself two totes!!!

Mail Art

I've been sending a lot of correspondence lately... These are a few cards I made one night when I was stuck in a hotel room on a bitterly cold evening. I bought a kids set of brush markers in red, blue and yellow and used them to make these postcards... I really like the results of having the limitation of 3 colors. Sometimes, I think all the choice you have when at home in your studio can keep you from creating...
