My Printer

People often ask me about the type of printer I use. So I thought I would write a short post and tell, those of you that are interested, about it.
      I always use Epson Printers. The reason I like Epsons so much, is because many of them (although not all) come with pigment inks, that are both waterproof and fade-proof, which makes it the perfect ink for crafting! This means your ink won't run or bleed, even when you apply something wet over top of it, like various types of glues,  Mod Podge, etc. You can even tea stain over it!
      My current printer is an Epson Workforce 1100, like the one you see above, it's a large format printer, that can be used with extra large paper, you can even print your own 12" x 12" scrapbook paper with it!  This printer uses DuraBrite ink, if you don't need a printer that prints this big, you can always purchase a smaller one, that uses the same type of ink.
      I hope that clears some things up!  You can find this printer particular printer on Amazon.

Please Note: I was not paid to write this review, and I did not receive any free products from Epson. This is my own opinion. There are however Amazon Affiliate links in this post.

Combining Transfers with Painted Flowers

This lovely project was created by Artist Tracy Moreau ! Tracy came up with the idea of combining transfers of my French Typography Graphics, with Hand Painted Flowers. What a stunning combo!

I don't think I've seen anyone do this before and I think the effect is so beautiful. She used the French Typography Graphic and the French Label Image for these lovely projects. I love the aging she did on these too! Tracy is an experienced painter and teacher, and has created some wonderful patterns and instructions that you can download from her site HERE.
