Hope you had a lovely weekend. Are you ready for the back to school/lunch box routine? I guess the kids go back to school this week in the UK too.
Our talented DT has been working with Transfer Artist Paper, or TAP paper for short. This has been a very popular product at our last Extravaganza and we thought we would feature it for our blog readers too, especially for those who did not have the chance to attend our event.
TAP paper is a premium quality transfer paper that allows you to transfer images to virtually any surface with the heat of an iron. Although, I must add, that our team has had more luck with porous surfaces like wood, canvas or fabric than on non porous surfaces...
You will find the full detailed instructions inside the package, but here's a bit more about it:
- Inkjet print (only), paint, stamp, or draw images on to TAP
- Iron on to your surface
- Transferred images are crisp and colourfast
- Washable and crack-resistant on fabric
- Overlap transferred images for a layered or collaged look
- Try Silicone Release Paper for protecting your iron and ironing board (sample sheet included)
and then resized to 6" as that is what I wanted the finished picture size to be....
This picture shows the original next to the new resized image printed onto the TAP paper.
the image looked on the fabric. I made the little cushion by hand....couldn't be bothered to get the sewing machine out!
The image was decorated by sewing beads around it and a bow of ribbon and trimmings to finish!

Now with Karen....
I stamped Crafty Individuals stamp CI-185 onto the Artists Tranfer Paper, then coloured lightly with Copic pens. This was then ironed onto some white cotton. I added some beads to the centres of the flowers before sewing this onto patterned fabric. I added more beads around the edge then frayed the white cotton. This was all sewed onto a base which was sewn into a lined pocket. More beads and a button were added. The 2x4 journal was decorated to match.
