TAP


TAP (transfer artist paper) -I have been having a little more playtime - this piece is scrim and fibres worked on the embellisher for cutting and weaving but when I print onto TAP I always have little strips left over so I coloured one small piece with Adirondack Pigment Pens - I like drawing with these and I wanted to see how it would go onto this surface which is quite open weave and flexible. You can't really see what I have done but look at the top left hand - enlarging will show better - 3 different colours - black/slate/pesto just scribbled - but it blends into the surface so well and you cannot tell that there is anything extra - once of course I have cut it up and woven it in you won't even know but the potential for other play is there. When I have finished the piece (this is for the back cover of my Stonehaven book) I shall transfer another rock image (my printer and PSP are not talking so I am sticking to this one pic for the moment), but I will be most interested to see how the image will look.

We went to a wedding on Sunday - lovely outing - but I wore my respectable black shoes to the church and managed an enormous blister on my heel after about 5 steps. Here it is finally cool in the mornings and evenings for walking and I cannot wear my laceups.....

But we are having a bbq tonight....

I haven't come across TAP but love the texture you have achieved in this piece. Hope your blister is better - that's the trouble with smart occasions! Enjoy your bbq.

Dale,

I'm interested in the results you are getting fromm this transfer product, the couloured piece will work in very well.
