Today I am sharing a tag I made for a swap using the packing tape transfer technique. Paint and inks etc are layered up on the gelli plate and what you see in front of you is what you get as your end result. Once you are happy with the way the design looks you leave it to dry and then use wide clear packing tape to pull the print and immediately place it down on paper/book pages/music score etc. (There are several YouTube tutorials on doing this technique). You do need to leave some clear patches in the design so that the sticky on the tape can actually stick to the paper. I have tried using gel medium to glue it down but it wasn't as successful as leaving the clear spaces.

I made this tag with 1.5" wide tape but a lady in the group this was made for has suggested using a roll of clear book covering. I have now purchased a roll so next time will be able to pull a print off the whole plate rather than having to do it in sections and try, not extremely successfully, to piece it together!
