Technique- Tape transfer

Remember some LOs I posted yesterday.
Here is one technique which I want to share:
Tape Transfer
1) First cut out a pattern, flower from your Pattern Paper.
Here I cut out this lovely print from Jenni Bowlin paper.
Then I put clear tape over..... covering the entire motif.
2) Then I soak it into a bowl of water. Leave it there for 5 mins.
3) By now the fibers of the paper will soften.... use your thumb to rub it off.
You will see that the motif is transferred to the tape.
4) Dry it and use clear glue to stick it your LO.
This gives the motif a clear gloss on time....... a fun way of using the patterns on your PP.
Here is the LO:
And another tip off: YSS is having a October Afternoon Contest. Load your LOs and projects using the latest OA range like Hometown, Weathervane...... you can win MORE OA goodies.
