More Tape Transfers

I've been on a roll doing these tape transfers this week. (Pun not intended!) Might as well use a bowl of water for making several transfers before the water got murky and had to be discarded.

The first one is for the History of The Month's Name ATC swap. October comes from the Roman word for eight and also, it was the month the Anglo Saxons celebrated the start of winter during October's full moon. In Rome, the goddess Ceres was honored as the goddess of the harvest. Her name gave us the word "cereal".

The moon is a tape transfer from vintage ephemera, and the harvest scene came from a book of old French advertising cuts. The 8 in brackets is grungeboard with metallic coloring. Spica and Sakura pens used for accent.

This next piece is a Skinny made for a private swap with a friend in the Netherlands. She asked that I surprise her, so I hope she like this.

Plum Choice

I colored the stamped lady image with Spica pens, then added a tape transfer of plums from a greeting card. Distress inks were used on the sides and then a swirl of "gems" was added. I think it turned out pretty well.

On another topic, I noticed that the weather forecast for Sunday calls for the highs to be 68 - 70 degrees!! Yippee! The leaves are starting to change color and there is rain in the forecast for a couple of days next week. That will be wonderful, we are in bad need of rain.

Hope you all of a nice weekend!
