Citrus Twist's May kits have a subtle tribal vibe running through them courtesy of some geometric Aztec patterns in zig zag triangles, diamond ripples and tie dye effects. I didn't want to go too tribal as none of my photos supported it. Instead I chose to do what I call modern tribal incorporating just a couple of ethnic patterns, in small doses and pairing them with quotations from a vellum cut-apart sheet. Keeping the background a neutral earth tone also adds to the understated tribal mood.
I guess this is also the month where I resume doing some of what I've been neglecting for a while - making tutorials. Here's one courtesy of Citrus Twist about image/text transfer using a blender pen:
First you do a mirror image flip of your text. Then print it on normal computer paper using a laser printer. If you don't have a laser printer, a photocopy from your local copy shop will work too.
Next place your text face down on the surface you wish to transfer onto. Saturate the back of the text with solvent from a blender pen. Once you see the text appear burnish over the text with a craft stick. The solvent releases the toner powder and allows the text to be transferred.
I use a Chartpak marker which give a pretty good transfer, slightly lighter than the original image but with nice sharpness.
