This morning I came across this image on Pinterest and fell in love.
I had also just happened to have gotten a new dark base color that I wanted to try out so off I went! I tried using the floral colors with a toothpick to dab on some flower like shapes..... it was an EPIC FAIL!
Back to the drawing board.... I tried to look up nail transfers hoping to find these. I have never purchased the transfers in the past because I feel they are overprices... but I loved these enough to give it a shot. Couldn't find them. The closest I came was another version on Mod Cloth that was out of stock. BUT in the process I came across this video on making your own transfers. It uses clear plastic to make your design on. Which means I can set it on top of an image I like and attempt to trace paint it. I googled for some images of vintage fabric and wall paper. I think I will try some of these.
Here is the video. I will let you know how it works out for me!
