Creative Image Transfer is finally available and I am so excited to be a part of it! The book includes 16 new mixed-media projects using TAP Transfer Artist Paper. My project uses TAP on Faux Bone – a non-toxic, flat PVC plastic that can be cut and carved into any shape for beautiful, lightweight jewelry components. The book showcases 5 of my Faux Bone necklaces, each with a TAP transfer of my artwork.
To celebrate the event, Lesley is having a Creative Image Transfer book and TAP Give-away! Just head over to her blog anytime from Aug. 6-10, 2014 and enter to win!
Title – Creative Image Transfer: Any Artist, Any Style, Any Surface
Release Date: Coming Soon!
OH SO excited/grateful/happy to be a part of Lesley’s newest book! Here is what the publisher is saying about it…
Join the creator of Lesley Riley’s TAP Transfer Artist Paper and a cadre of talented designers, including several frequent contributors to Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, to explore exciting new ideas to create with TAP. With a sheet of TAP and a hot iron, you can transfer a permanent image onto almost any solid surface. Try 16 fun, new projects ranging from jewelry to home accessories and mixed-media arts. Learn to transfer images onto new surfaces such as faux bone, as well as fabric, paper, wood, metal, and glass; use with encaustic. Use the many techniques as a jumping-off point for creating your own TAP magic.
My featured project consists of jewelry made of Faux Bone with TAP transfers of my paintings and mixed media artwork. Faux bone is a smooth non-toxic plastic similar to PVC. It can be cut, sanded, carved and drilled to form any shape. It accepts the TAP transfers nicely to make jewelry that showcases miniature versions of your artwork.
I am anxiously awaiting my Barnes & Noble moment when I get to go into the store and see it in print! It is always such a thrill to stand in front of the shelves and know that when you open the pages, your artwork will be in there! Magic!
Thanks, Lesley, for the opportunity!
