Yesterday I took a class at Stitcher's Crossing where we played with Lutradur and Transfer Artist Paper (TAP). Once a month at Stitcher's, Gael teaches a fiber arts workshop.
I bought some Lutradur years ago in Houston but I haven't really done much with it. And I have wanted to play with TAP for a while, but I had no idea what to do with it.
We discussed different ways to use both the Lutradur and TAP. One of the cool things you can do with both is put them through an inkjet printer and print images on them.
A lady named Cathi (who declined to be photographed, but was okay with me showing her "stuff"), brought all these vintage prints. And she was kind enough to share them with the class.
So I made a collage and scanned them in and printed them out on a sheet of the TAP and on a sheet of the thinnest Lutradur (Ultra-Light).
I taped the Lutradur to a sheet of printer paper so that it would feed through the printer.
This is the printed Lutradur on white fabric. I like the ethereal look to the images. I'm thinking I might want to try printing some photos of birds and trees.
This is the paper that I used to back the Lutradur on its trip through the printer. I really like the way this looks. Not sure what I'm going to do with it.
This postcard was part of Cathi's collection. I photographed it because the address is not far from where I grew up. Although I suspect this was mailed long before I lived there.
"This is what you see in Egypt dry and barren lands L.M."
That's all it says. I assume Miss A. Schood knew who "L.M." was.
The photograph on the front had mountains drawn in behind the building. And there's a boat. On water. "Dry and barren"?!
