Still TAPping

In an earlier post, I spoke about a product known as TAP (Artist Transfer Paper). Although there were some things I did not like about it, I know I will find many uses for it. Recently I took one of my feather designs, drew it directly onto fabric and coloured it using ordinary crayons. I quite liked the way it turned out and decided to use the TAP to duplicate this one.So I scanned the original and then printed a couple of the images onto a sheet of TAP. Cut one out and transferred that image onto fabric using a hot iron.The original is on the right and the TAPped version is on the left, finished as a postcard. I must admit this was kinda cool!

I'm glad you got it figured out....my affection for the product plummetted into a RANT on my blog....oh my.....
It's always on the important projects things seem to go haywire.
Love the feathers!

Okay, I'm sold! This is a great way to make a set of cards without having to color each one in -- efficient AND artful. What more could a gal want???!! I'm off to find me some of this great stuff -- where did you say you bought it?

BTW, you have found a way to make the simple feather into a thing of pure beauty -- and you've made it your own with your signature style.

Love the way you are exploring the medium as well as the imagery.

So you stamped it first with your very own design that you carved, then colored it, then reproduced it?
Yeah...way cool.
It is a beautiful piece of art!

Happy Sewing
