A while back, I did a tutorial on my blog where you could use Sticky Back Canvas and patterned paper to do a transfer. I love the look of the patterns on canvas, but I don't always want to use sticky back canvas. Recently I was watching a Live with Prima episode and found out you can do a similar technique using Multi Medium.
For this technique you will need your canvas (other fabrics will work as well, but I suggest you stick to lighter colors), multi medium, paint brush, patterned paper, and a water bottle.
Begin by placing a layer of multi medium onto the canvas where your paper image will go. Remember, do not use words or numbers as inn the end you will have a reverse image, and unless you want to be reading your project in the mirror.....Adhere your image over the top being sure to press firmly. Let dry over night.
The next day, spritz the paper with a bit of water and use your finger to rub off the paper. Yep, this step can be a bit messy.
If you would like to brighten it up, a quick coating of Mod Podge should do the trick.
Remember I told you I had more ideas for my A4 papers...this is one of them. The papers have the perfect weight for this technique.
I covered my canvas with some beautiful Prima flowers, many of them brand new from my Your Memories Here grab bag! I also used some of the new gorgeous Prima resins, leaves, alphas, and buttons also from my grab bag. A bit of chipboard from 3Tails Craft and some seam binding I dyed with Glimmer Mist finished this project off.

I really like this idea for a wall hanging and am thinking I should make another for Christmas soon.
