Pinterest Challenge Results!

I'm back with a quick post for Dog Mom's Pinterest Challenge before I leave for a nice long vacation TOMORROW MORNING!

My inspiration (as seen in this post) involved laser printing a picture onto regular paper and then transferring it onto canvas.

So I printed out a picture from the Bourbon Trail we took last year - Maker's Mark was our favorite distillery and I love this picture I took with my digital camera:

So I converted it to black and white and did a little cropping and went to work. This was after letting the picture and gel stuff sit over night:

The super annoying part of the deal was scraping off all the paper without taking up too much of the picture.

The final product:

I just rotated, saved, resaved, and renamed this picture and it would. not. upload. the right way.

Anyway, I think it turned out pretty well, considering this was attempt #1. I am not thrilled wilth how much of the picture rubbed off (that line through the middle bugs me), but I definitely want to try this again!  Thanks to Dog Mom for the inspiration to get my butt moving on this project!


  1. Wow! That looks great! Btw, have fun on vacation!

  2. Love it! I have been wanting to try that for awhile but just haven't had the time. My boss lives down that way and did the tour too. I am hoping that I can get Matt to go down there for a mini vacay.

  3. Love this! I actually like the parts that stripped off. I wonder how it would work if you painted your canvas first...

  4. Great looking photo! Hope you enjoy your vacation!

  5. Looks cool! hope you're having a FABULOUS holiday! xxx

  6. This looks SO awesome! I'll post it SOON!
