this post to try out the packing tape transfers using my drawing of the filling station in Odell, IL on Route 66. I like how it turned out a crisp, crisp image, but I'm going to have to get used to the idea that the edges of the tape do show when the light hits it just right. Right now I'm trying out a different transfer method that would not have the tape layer. I am very pleased with the background here...it's several layers of acrylic paint and spray ink.
I stamped and collaged a bit around the edges using vintage items from the nearby area, and also dictionary pages with travel themed words.
