Ode to Packing Tape … CHALLENGE!

Packing Tape image transfers seem to be a staple to many mixed media artists.
They’re easy, fun and can provide layers like nothing else can!
For our August challenge we’d like to see how you all use packing tape image transfers in your work.

If you have yet to try this out, we have two tutorials you can check out:
Lara did a tutorial a couple of months ago about this most delightful technique. And Kas did a lovely tutorial a couple of weeks ago about tape transferring.

To help along that creative flow here’s a couple of different types of projects it can be used with as demonstrated by the Gauche Alchemists:

Yvonne made a scrapbook page. She used parts from the Wholey Sheet Kit. And the transfer tape technique to add a little texture to the background…

Pam created an ATC about one of her favorite things

And, Lara did an Art Journal paying homage to a recent trip to London

Let’s see what you got! Link up to this post before Sunday August 29 and be the running for a $10 Gift Certificate to the Gauche Alchemy Artfire Store!
