Christine Delgadillo’s Jump Start


I met Christine first online through my work as an Golden Ambassador for Tattered Angels and then finally met her last January during my workshops in San Jose. She is amazingly talented – I really love her work and she is a woman with the heart on the right spot!

Christine Bio Pic

I live in the beautiful Bay Area of Northern California. My husband, Jose, and I will be celebrating our 30 year anniversary in January, and I’m a mom to three great kids (all grown up!).

I retired from my 20+ year paralegal job a few years ago, and now enjoy scouring estate sales, antique fairs and yard sales for treasures to recycle and repurpose for my art and for a booth I share with a friend at a local vintage consignment store.  I’m a Certified Educator for Tattered Angels, teach at local scrapbook stores, and am the Design Team Coordinator for my local scrapbook store.   I love discovering and teaching new techniques, creating interactive projects, and sharing ideas with others.  The best part of teaching is meeting so many wonderful people who love to create!

I was recently published in the June 2012 issue of Love My Memories, and was the  “Grande” Prize winner of the AccuCut GrandeMARK Challenge.


Check out Christine’s fun transfer techniques.

if you cannot see the video in this browser – here is the link:

As we found out later – and so for our outside the US and Canada viewers:

Krylon Crystal Clear is an acrylic coating and provides a permanent, protective gloss coating that will not yellow with age. only available in the U.S. and Canada. We are not sure which other supply might be available in other countries to do the same thing, plus it might be very different from country to country. Sorry!

You can find Christine’s work also on her Blog.

I hope you enjoyed todays Jumpstart !

  4. momzart101 says:

    I like this technique. I’ve been using inkjet and vodka. This is a good alternative for some older toner based images I’ve wanted to transfer. Thanks for video.

  5. Lorraine Melanson says:

    That looks fantastic. One question: what do you mean by “toner based” image? Will this work with an image printed on an ink jet printer? How about using images in magazines? Thank you.

  6. Thanks for the refresher on this! Hugs!

  69. Great technique. Certainly the easiest transfer I’ve seen.
    For those not able to get the Krylon spray Christine has already done some additional research & it’s on her blog. I hope she doesn’t mind me quoting her here for the purpose of helping fellow crafters.
    “I got the same image transfer results using these two acrylic sealers made by Deco Art and by Plaid. Both of these companies distribute internationally.”

  70. Isabel LopezDel RinconTroussel says:

  99. I’m in Australia and I’m afraid I cannot see them even from the link as it brings me back to here when i copy and paste

  100. What a fabulous transfer technique! Thanks for sharing xx

  101. That is really cool! I would have never thought to use that product that way, and to think it has been stitting on my shelf for years 🙂

  102. Cheryl Sue says:

    I’ve never seen transferring done this way! I am so inspired by this video. Thanks for sharing!

  103. What a great techinique. I had no idea Krylon Crystal clear would do that. Can’t wait to try it.

  104. Lisa crofts says:

    Very cool. Great transfer product.

  105. That was FRABJOUS!!!!!! *jazz hands* Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  106. Who would have thought of using Crystal Clear Spray to make a transfer … and air clay … oh the possibilities … thanks for sharing.

  107. lisa glowatsk says:

    Such a cool technique Thank you

  108. Wow, another great technique…so clever! Thank you!

  109. Very cool! Loved it when you used the can for the brayer 🙂

  110. Jan Simpson says:

    I couldn’t picture what I could do with that until I clicked on your blog. WOW! Absolutely beautiful. Took my breath away. Thanks for taking the time to share your art.

  111. Vanessa Miles says:

    I like the transfer to fabric. That will add interest to some projects.

  112. ScrappinEweRobyn (Robyn) says:

    How cool………thanks for the different ideas!

  113. I have a question… does it make a difference what the content of the fabric is that you transfer to (100% cotton, cotton/polyester blend, silk, rayon, etc.)? And, can the fabric be laundered after transfering to it? I have some ideas for using this to make custom fabrics for quilting but wouldn’t want to use it if the transfers would not hold up to cleaning.

    This is an awesome technique anyway and I can see myself using it for making custom covers for handmade hardbound books!


  114. I dont know this product for transfers. Probably not exist in my country.

  115. I have never seen it before. Very cool. Thank you for sharing.

  116. Very fun techniques!! Thanks.

  117. This is the best photo transfer technique I have seen..looks so easy! I will have to give it a try!

  118. I know Christine is trying to be helpful but I must warn of the hazardous chemicals found in this product so you can decide if the cool effect is worth it (especially if you have young children, pets or are pregnant. The US government requires that manufacturers declare their products’ ingredients and level of safety in occupational environments. Here is the link on Crystal Clear, if you are interested.

  119. Jenny Palmer says:

    cool technique

  120. I have seen/tried some transfer techniques but this one is new to me. If it’s toner based, then, photocopied images should work too, right?

  121. Great technique, never seen before. Thank you!
    Hugs from Brazil

  122. Great Job Christine! I love the video and tip. I will be buying this for sure

  123. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! I’m inspired 🙂

  124. Wonderful ideas!

  125. That is a totally new technique to me. Can’t wait to try it. Thx.

  126. So freakin’ COOL!!!

  127. okay…now that was cool! I have the spray for sealing some of my pages…this has given me some ideas for kids tshirts!! Thanks!! 🙂

  128. Great technique, never seen before. Thank you!

  129. Really, really different….shame we can’t get that product in Oz:(:(!!!!!!

  130. lacyquilter says:

    Looks like a fun technique.

  131. WOW! Love this video. So many new ideas are going through my head. I use fabric all the time in my Art. I live in Canada and our local art store carries this product. I will visiting this store tomorrow to make a purchase.

  132. S Mellows says:

    Thank you for that great technique. I use that product to seal my ATC cards and drawings when the weather is warm enough! You really gave me a lot of ideas. This means I can go photo copy my drawings, transfer them to canvas (unframed), paint over the transfer with clear gesso and then paint them. Thank you very much Christine for sharing! I sincerely appreciate it.

  133. what an amazing technique!! I have this but only have used it for preserving prints. Oh what fun this is going to be to play with-thank you!

  134. Nurse Ratchet says:
