Scrap Wood & Scrap Fabric Fridas

Waterslide decals and iron-on tshirt transfers are my jam!  Growing up I used to make elaborate stencils with contact paper and spray paint the shapes on my t-shirts because there was just no way to make an at-home transfer.  Now, with a home computer and inkjet printer you can transfer ANY image onto almost any substrate.  I used waterslide decals on raw wood and tshirt transfer paper for these funky Frida Art Dolls.  Holiday gifts are already being made my sweet friends!  Watch how I made these and perhaps they'll inspire you to create some of your own.  Heck, use photos of your kids with fun paper doll bodies.  If you can make it on a computer you can print it out and transfer it.  Have fun and Make Your Mark! 
The fabulous Fridas!
I used scrap wood for the paddle dolls.

  1. I love the way these turned out! I think I might need to create a set of scientist dolls for my classroom- that slide paper technique is fantastic! I've been wanting to highlight scientists from countries around, especially female scientists, and this seems like a much more fun way to do it than just a photo on a bulletin board. Thanks for being such an inspiration!
