Transfer Tutorial

If you've seen my blog in the last week, you've probably seen my surfboard sign tutorial for this...

and these...

Well, now I have a moment to show you how to transfer a picture onto the surface of the surfboard. You can also use this method to transfer pictures onto all sorts of other surfaces for endless crafts and projects. Here's how I did it...
 First, I sketched a picture. Then I turned the paper over and used the side of the pencil to cover the entire paper (or at least the area of the paper that the drawing was on).
 Next, I decided where I wanted to place the picture on the surfboard and then taped it in place.

 Then I firmly traced over the original drawing.

When I peeled off the tape and lifted the paper, my picture was now on the surfboard and ready to paint! An easy peasy way to eliminate dark pencil and/or eraser marks on a surface that you'd like to be clean. :-)


  1. Thank you for the reminder of a classic technique! Hope you have a good day.

  2. No problem! I was hoping someone might find it useful. My mom had never seen it until we were making the surfboards together, so perhaps someone else will be enlightened, too! :-)

  3. Jessica, THis is such an easy tutorial to follow. The garden sign looks great in your garden!!!!!


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog. I'd love to hear from you!
