this beautiful Dutch girl came to me while I was poking around in one of my image files so I created a TAP transfer on a little child’s dress adding some white highlights with a favorite SIGNO pen …

  9. You really WERE inspired to use your TAP today. This is gorgeous. This entire spread spoke to me from the little girl’s dress to the dotted scrapbook paper to the way you placed the quote on the cheesecloth. Really, really clever.

    I started to play with my TAP today, but I have to figure out how to lighten the images or they will never show properly on the transfer. I take it you have an ink jet as well as a laser printer.

  15. You have tied the two pages together so beautifully with color and texture. As I looked at the Dutch lady, I started thinking that wearing a cap like that would sure take away with the daily hassle of fixing my hair. LOL!

  17. That’s a great background paper, perfect for this. I’ve been reading reviews about TAP paper, very mixed, but you don’t seem to have any trouble getting excellent transfers.
    Your work is as always beautiful, delicate and with soul.
