Inspired by Fall

The first photo is a colored pencil drawing on my art tablet. I then copied it onto some Avery fabric transfer paper (you can get it at any office supply), and ironed it onto plain white fabric. At first it wasn't working, but then when I ironed it with the fabric side up, it worked right away. The colors stayed very true, and the hand is still pretty soft as long as you pull the backing paper off quickly rather than leaving it on while the fabric and image cool down. The second photo shows you how little you lose in the transfer process. (One note: your image will be flipped, so beware of text).
