Autumn Tape Transfer

I know it's not officially Autumn, but it will be in 4 days! The temps have climbed back up in the last few days and I needed something to remind me that cooler days are coming. I am hosting a packing tape transfer technique ATC swap for my group on Swap-Bot and chose an Autumn image for it.

The image comes from a postcard received by my Grandmother in 1918. Since I have a laser printer, I was able to copy it so as not to ruin the postcard. The transfer is layered on top of piece of an old song sheet that I found in my stash. It took me a while to find a song referring to Autumn! I distressed the page a bit (it was already aged pretty well) and added the tape transfer, then added fibers and an old jewelry finding. 

If you want to learn more about packing tape transfer, here is a video at Youtube about what is involved. It's pretty easy and it's one of my favorite techniques.

Even though the temperature was 90 degrees today, this helps me feel more like the Autumn days I'm looking forward to!


  1. What exactly is a "tape transfer"? Whatever it is, it is beautiful!

  4. Yay!, for Autumn being only 4 days away! Love the theme and the way you are using the tape and especially the fact that you have a 1918 postcard that was received by our Grandmother! It is indeed a beautiful inspiration and as always I love the little embellishment! Love you!
