October Club Couture - Don't Change Beautiful

For celebrating all the beautiful people, places, things, and experiences in life, you’ll be drawn to this Transfer. Charming flowers and a mixture of fonts make it an eye-catching piece with great creative possibilities. We chose to chalk this in Daffodil, Eucalyptus, Fig, and Bright White, and it’s just calling for your beautiful touch with other color combinations as well. Try chalking the flowers as they exist on the largest Transfer piece, and then using them again turned around at the top of a surface for even more pizzazz.

 Supplies Needed

-Club Couture Transfer: Don't Change Beautiful

-Chalkology Paste Singles: Daffodil, Eucalyptus, and Fig

-ChalkologyTM PasteBright White (included in the optional Kickstart Kit)

-Tools: Mini Squeegee (2), Small SqueegeeColor TraysFuzzing Cloth and Transfer Trimmers 

-Surface: Couture BoutiqueTM Sylvie White Frame (Black, 9" × 12")

Color and Placement for Club Couture

Eucalyptus: “You are”, “don’t change”, and leaves 
Bright White: “Beautiful”
Fig: Flowers
Daffodil: Flower centers and small blossoms

Follow these instructions to complete the Club Couture project:

1. Remove your Transfer from its packaging.

2. Cut along the Transfer’s provided cut line to separate the two elements.

3. Carefully peel off the Transfer Backer Sheet of the sentiment “You are beautiful. Don’t Change.”

4. “Fuzz” the Transfer by gently pressing it onto a Fuzzing Cloth and carefully pulling it upward to collect a bit of lint (this helps to more easily remove the Transfer from the surface after you’ve applied the paste).

5. Position the Transfer on the bottom half of the surface and smooth it out to adhere, ensuring there are no bubbles.

6. Knead each Chalkology Paste Single, open the corner, and squeeze the desired amount onto a Color Tray, using a new tray for each color.

7. Use a generous amount of Chalkology Paste on your squeegee and smooth it over the Transfer (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”). Use a clean squeegee to apply each different colored paste to words, flowers, and leaves.

8. Once the screen portion of the design is completely covered, squeegee the excess paste off as evenly as possible and scrape it back into the palette. The more excess paste you remove, the better the result will be. (If working with a reusable surface, be sure to chalk the registration marks found toward the bottom edges of this first Transfer to guide your placement of the second layer. If your surface is not reusable, you may wish to avoid the registration marks or use placement tape in the area you wishto chalk the marks.)

9. Before the paste dries, slowly peel back the Transfer and immediately clean it with cool water (do not let it soak).

10. Afterthepasteonyoursurfacenolongerfeelstacky,turnthe completely dried Transfer around and place it at the top half of the surface, pressing down gently on and around only the flowers and leaves. Chalk the flowers and leaves again, according to the “Color and Placement Suggestions” and directions above. Clean the Transfer and dry it flat with the sticky side up.

11. Allow sufficient drying time of your surface (or use a hair dryer to speed up drying) before layering the remaining Transfer that includes the flower centers and small blossoms.

12. Use the chalked registration marks to align the remaining Transfer and use a clean squeegee to chalk the flower centers and small blossoms at both the top and bottom of the surface.

13. Once all Transfer elements are washed and dried, reapply the Backer Sheet to each and store both flat.

14. Use a damp cloth or paper towel to wipe registration marks off of the surface.

15. Relish your creation!
