Water Slide Decal Pictures

I love finding new ways to use water slide decals......This time it was pictures


I already use decals on soap, candles, glass, and furniture.  The full water slide decal tutorial is HERE


I found some great frames and sprayed them with Rust-Oleum Heirloom white, then gave them a little sanding.

I used a vintage table cloth and spray adhesive to cover the backing boards


Then slide the decals onto the BACK of the glass.  The graphics are from Graphics Fairy


 For decals with words, you will have to reverse the image


I love how they turned out and they sold immediately in my booth at Orange Tree



 This was a really easy project.......Now I'm on the look out for more cute little frames.

Happy Creating!
Carol

I love them both, Carol! I have to say my favorite is the one with the man serenading the woman on the balcony. Very pretty!

I'm with Nana-Diana,... I don't know what a water slide decal is either.
I hear people talking about them and I've seen you use them...they are pretty...But, I'm ignorant of how they work...or where to get them!

This is a wonderful idea! I could see many applications for this idea. Glad it is so popular in your booth. I can see why,they are just so very pretty! I like the new look on your blog, and will grab your new button. I have to say that I miss your blog roll though. I liked to come and visit one of the blogs you follow or two every time I visit. So I miss that.
Blessings,
Susie

Great idea! I love it. I bought some water slide paper on ebay and it just had no sticky. It didn't work well like what I got from you. They gave me my money back but now I have to find a better brand. I want to try this project!

E said...

These look great in the pics, bet they are beautiful in person, so clever ! Elaine

Patty Patterson said...

Those are super cute! Thanks for sharing!

Kathy A Delightsome Life said...

These look gorgeous - I just have to try the water slide decals! You do a marvelous job! I hope you have a blessed week,
kathy

Tracy said...

Gorgeous! You have the BEST ideas. Every time I come here I'm pinning something to my "to-do" board!

sandys7118 said...

I love this idea! The possibilities are endless since the background is fabric. A person could match up fabric used in the room to accent! OMG...creative overload! I am so glad you have a creative mind and can think of all this stuff for us who have issues when thinking "outside the box"! Thank you!

Carol,

I really like the way these look on the glass. The water slide decals have always intimidated me and the paper is so expensive! It really is a great look, though :)

Gina said...

I have no doubt that these sold immediately. They are so pretty!

The Porcelain Rose said...

Carol,
Tooooo cute! Love them!
I just used that same peachy pink "frame" graphic (from The Graphics Fairy) to create a custom banner for a client. I love working with vintage graphics! I enjoy my visits here and can't wait to see what's next.
Will visit again soon.

Some day I'm going to work up the courage to try a water decal. These are truly lovely. You're so inspiring.. I just have to get my nerve up!

Createology said...

Deliciously Divinely Dreamy. Your style is ohh la la...tres chic.

Sisters Treasures said...

So cute, I can see why they sold imeediately. Finding cool vintage frames isn't as easy as it used to be, so good luck hunting!
As always, I'm totally impressed with your ideas.

Debbie said...

I think they look wonderful. I've been collecting frames to paint white because I love the look. I just hadn't decided what to put in it. This is such a pretty and romantic looking idea.

Rona Gregory said...

Another Brilliant idea Carol...they look fab! Hope all is well with you and you're not melting in some sort of heatwave, or worse being washed away in a storm! I have visitors until the middle of August but hope to try out my new sprayer once my house is a little less like a hotel! Thank you so much for getting it to me xxxxx

Robin@robinsnestquilting said...

Hi Carol. Do you sell just the decal paper plain? I see that you sell it already printed.

Little Miss Maggie said...

Carol, these are so pretty. I never would have thought to put a frame around the French typography image. Love it.

Maki said...

Love you framed creations Carol. Just so French chic. Have a great week. XO cmd

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

These are so pretty Carol. What a clever was to create the background with the old tablecloth. Love the color and sweet prints.

Nancy said...

So Pretty Carol!! I have a line up in my Kitchen waiting for a Decal Session, I even have some cute frames from last years Fancy Flea that I would like to do. By chance do you have reverse Instructions?

Huggs, Nancy

Laurel Stephens said...

I love these! You're the water slide decal queen!

Debbiedoo's said...

Those are neat Carol!~ They look so pretty too.

Sisters Treasures said...

Those are so neat, Carol. I am serious about you needing to do a book with all your great tutorials. Some publisher should sign you up!!!
Have a great one!

❁Velma ~Down Our Country Road❁ said...

Those are just too darn cute! I've got tons of empty picture frames not knowing what to do with them...now I do!

Katie said...

I love these! Seriously do you ever sleep?! I don't know how you make everything you do and post almost daily! You are amazing! I had ordered some water slide decals awhile back ~ so they are waiting for a project. I think this will be my first :-) This post came at a perfect time.

Today my daughters and I are going thrifting. So I will be on the lookout for cute frames and vintage table tablecloths/fabric, maybe I will just buy some pretty fabric from a fabric store. Ps. Thank you for always leaving a sweet comment, and I don't really mind the heat. Plus I love working in my yard (it's therapy for me). I would rather be hot than cold any day... XoXo
