TAP image transfer on metal shim
I LOVE Transfer Artist Paper aka TAP! I was at the front of the line to purchase it when it was first released by Lesley Riley. With this fabulous image transfer paper Lesley ended a lot of frustration for mixed media artists world wide. No more worries about the type of printer ink you had or the endless search for the paper or transparency film that works. TAP solved a lot of problems and took the mixed media art world by storm! It was awarded the coveted Most Innovative New Product by the Craft and Hobby Association in 2011.

I use TAP in a lot of my collage work and I have TAPped on tote bags, banners, lutradur, metal, wood, ceramic and just about every sort of fabric you can imagine. TAP is a frequent winner in my classes too. Students always fall in love with it when they see how versatile and easy to use TAP is. Lesley has a new on-line class on CraftArtEdu where you can learn all the great techniques, tips and tricks directly from Lesley Riley herself...right in your own home: Create with TAP Transfer Artist Paper™ with Lesley Riley. You can even watch a preview of Lesley's class.

Just learned about tap through this blog hop...can't wait to try it. Looks like it is incredibly versatile! Love what you did with it.
Sheesh, I bought TAP when it was first released and still have not used it. I guess it is about time.
And I have no idea why this is in all caps, sorry. I don't have the caps lock on.
I'm not sure what i would like to use it for as an end result, but i think i'd like to print one of my photos on it to embellish for a zipper pouch fabric.
would so love to learn this and use this product. thank you so much for the chance to win. xoxo
I would really love to win a spot in Lesley's class. Everyday I have learned how wonderful TAP is. I have to try it!
I hope to make a memorial quilt for my mother, and iF it works out well, a memorial to my dear friend Eva. I used TAP once but would love to learn more about what it can do.
I've never used mine either. Don't mean to scream but for some reason I can't get out of caps on your site!!
Hi liz! Thanks for showing us your work with tap! Cool use in the fabric book - i really liked that. love your blog too!
