I discovered a new way to make a tape transfer!
I use an old plastic insert from a lunchbox as my palette when I am painting and quite by chance one day I picked up some paint with a some clear tape and since then have had some pretty random bits of tape to use in my journals..but what if..I thought...I make some patterns in the paint remaining ...so that's what I did with a stamp(which I cleaned straight way afterwards each time!!
The paint built up a little and today I decided to lift some off.
I made small pieces and stuck them on my page over some mop up green oxide ink!
I spritzed some water over some Distress oxides mixed with a little gold paint to get a shimmer on my paper
I stamped a Lynne Perella image on the paper and also on my page...
..and used part of another LP stamp around the edge of my page
I stuck the blue image over the top of the one on the page
As you can see the page is quite shiny.
It is also my latest page for Art For Arts Sake at Art Journal Journey
As it's Tuesday I am here to join Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday.
We have been out and about as some of you may know but no photos so I am taking you back to Paris.
This was at a cafe that we stopped at after I had tripped over after taking a photo of this garden....
..which was being made on reclaimed land - it should look great in a few years time.
Just after taking this photo I didn't notice the dip in the pavement around a tree and did a slow motion fall! I grazed my elbow a bit but felt a bit wobbly so we stopped so I could sit down at the first place we came to!
I was fine and we went on to see Notre Dame..
I am very late getting here so I will visit tomorrow!
Thanks for looking, Chris
