Monday's tag!

Today my husband had to have a most unpleasant test done, so after we got home from the hospital, he needed some rest, which means I "should" try to be A LITTLE quiet. Course he sleeeeeeeps and snores like a bear, but still.... So I had done the background on this tag using Gesso and Distress Stains. LOVE THOSE BABIES! And you can't even SEE the cool effect with all the 'layers' I did! This weekend I had a blast demo-ing Lutradur and TAP (Transfer Artist Paper) at Artist and Display. The main image here from My Vintage Vogue is transferred onto white cotton. How clear & crisp is this??? LOVE IT! I used some vintage buttons & rick-rack. A Butterick dress pattern and in the back ground another collage image of patterns from Altered Pages. There's also a small dress pattern image from Tim Holtz' CD. The 'thread spool' stamp is done on parchment and part of tim's new Haberdashery stamp set which I just love too!

Hello, I found your wonderful blog from a message you had left on All Things Tim. As I scrolled through your blog I saw you had done a demo at a local store using Latadur and TAP. Would you be willing to share your findings on using these two products? I have some TAP on order but am wondering if I should of purchased Lutradur instead. I have read up on both but do not know anyone who has used them and would prefer an unobjective opinion over an company's opinion-LOL!! I would appreciate any assistance you can give me.

I forgot to mention that I had tried to go to the Lutradur & TAP link plus the Altered Pages link but it says the links are broken.
