I like it Grainy!

I was playing around with this great transfer paper called Sheer Heaven. This is an inkjet print of a cropped girl that I transferred with the Sheer Heaven Transfer paper. I really like the "grainy" results from the transfer although these sheets are virtually "suppose" to produce an almost photographic image. I like it grainy though and hopefully these are the results I will continue to get. It depends how much you bone fold it I guess. Pretty cool effect. The lines around it is just a Pitt marker.

I like it Grainy too - very cool effect! Is it just a type of printer photo paper you used? I had never heard of that before. Looks great!

Love the graininess too - especially because it shows up so much on her hair and the background and makes her face glow.

I think it looks wonderful like that. I would have thought you wanted it to be that way.

I agree, the grainy effect is cool, looks like you did it on purpose.

Beautiful transfer Martha! Where did you purchase the Sheer Heaven transfer paper? When I do transfers, I always hold my breath - sometimes they work, sometimes not so much. :-)
