Packing Tape Transfers

These are 2 gluebook pages using packing tape transfers. On the left, the transfers are the lines of sheet music in the background, and on the right the transfer is the picture. I had to make sure to make the text paper really indistinct where I wanted his face to be or else you couldn't see it clearly. Masking tape works beautifully for that purpose. Images: Lady Churchill from Green Paper and Flo Ziegfeld from a catalog received in the mail.

Wonderful transfers. You and I are on the same wavelength as all my posts last week included transfers. Isn't masking tape perfect for such backgrounds. TFS your beautiful art. Lynne x

Great transfers, Penny. ( I never had much luck with that technique, but you seem to have mastered it. )
