"Childhood Memories" Collage

Not long ago I received some TAP artist transfer paper from C&T Publishing Company, along with some flowered tissue paper.  I made them a sample product that I have not shown yet on my blog.  In addition, I began several other projects using the TAP.  On this one, I transferred the image of my great-niece, Hunter, directly to a canvas artist's board.  This was the only transfer that did not come out perfect- there were some areas that looked a little scratchy.  Perhaps if I had continued to iron....

Anyway, with the image of the little girl in the center, I added tissue paper, napkins, and magazine cutouts to surround her.  I added some text and drawing with a black Sharpie, and some 3-D flowers with rhinestones that I cut out of a birthday card.  There are various symbols such as the clock to denote the passage of time, the tree with the words  "Home is where your story begins,"  and a little Bible reference, "For with God, nothing shall be impossible,"  Luke 1:37.  This was a fun project and will be a birthday gift.

Hey.. you girl!! This is great... I did the TAP for C & T as well...
I haven't posted anything to my blog, but I played a bit with some photos and made a book cover... which little book is being bound as I type this. I did show that cover on my blog
I love that transfer medium. I did my piece for the Autistic challenge using it last year. I had ordered some directly from Lesley...
