jessthespringer Lucid dreaming - Look at the X every hour until it becomes a habit. If you look down and it's not there, then you know you're dreaming and may become lucid.
I've been having some very trippy dreams lately. Mostly just weird or amusing* but occasionally they've been very scary. Last nights featured wild boar. "the boar may be a symbol of needing to isolate oneself from the rest of the world for a time. It may also infer a need to withdraw from social activities in an effort to get in touch with oneself." Not far from the truth at all! Totally immersed in Artists Book college project right now. "Zero craic" according to my friends. * inappropriate

  •   sfell1 Tell those friends some of your *amusing dreams, they sound like good craic!! 4d
  •   jessthespringer @sfell1 oh they know about them alright... well, most of them. Most interesting one of late. "Can I touch your eyebrow" and it actually came true. #truestory 4d

jessthespringer Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.
Fuck.

FUCK!
Big fucking, bag of fucking dicks!!! The image is just falling off the paper, and, I don't know why. They've dried for 12 hours.
I'm going to cry.

  •   jessthespringer Thanks guys. There's a certain amount of 'distress' expected, but there's too much in these, the image isn't stable at all. I fucked up, just not sure where. @vicsums @jlm_cork 2w
  •   vicsums Don't beat yourself up, try again X 2w
  •   jlm_cork If you slap glass down on them immediately would that help? 2w
  •   jessthespringer Was skimming them with s credit card, but then switched to burnishing with a spoon. I think they're maybe not dried well enough. Though I've dried others for less and they were more stable then these. Slapping a shot glass on bar might help just now! 2w

jessthespringer Image Transfers - Swear word vocabulary has really fucking improved! Process is getting better... 1. a brush is much better than a sponge for applying medium 2. a plastic spoon makes a much better burnisher than a credit card. Getting much cleaner transfers and less distress to the image (though this still something I like). #artistsbook #bacreativeimaging #ljmu #photography #imagetransfer #paperonpaper #handmadepaper 2w

jessthespringer Image transfers washed and drying down. They'll need washed again. It's a bit fiddly, bit too heavy handed the odd time and managed to rub some of the image away, but then that's what attracted me to this in the first place. If anyone has done this process before and has any advice, I'd be grateful for any suggestions. #imagetransfer #paperonpaper #photography #bacreativeimaging Thanks to @keenan7316 @conormcaleavey and @dreel1977 for modelling for me. 2w
  •   sinead.mc What technique are you using? 2w
  •   jessthespringer @sinead.mc Laser print, with matt mod podge (have tried various medium, but this proved to be most consistent) on to hand made paper. Dry for 24 hrs and then begin to wash off the backing. Most seem to need 3 washes. But I'm impatient! 2w
  •   tashac94 Love this 2w

jessthespringer Fucked up image transfer. Kept coming back to it... Showed it to my professor and he liked it... "Fuck up more" okay then! #imagetransfer #cellulosethinners #fuckedup #baddesire #bacreativeimaging #photography 4w
  •   nicaaf Well done you. Worth a second glance and a wide grin. 4w

jessthespringer Artwork is not mine, but after many, many failed and shitty result attempts at image transfer, I've found (what I hope) a consistent process. Now, next step, good paper and new content. Model calls coming soon! #imagetransfer #notmyart #bacreativeimaging #ljmu 4w
