Blog Hop - XYRON !


When given the opportunity to create something with
Xyron double-sided tapes and dots,
here's what I came up with:



  • On a sheet of cold-press watercolor paper, I drew a simple skyline with a water soluble pencil.
  • I loosely added washes of watercolor below this line and let it dry.
  • I then brushed over with matte medium to seal it.
  • I used the Xyron tape and dots to transfer text from an old book.
  • I simply pressed the tape onto the text, cut it out to the desired size and shape, and placed it on my work.
  • I then removed the tape backing, and with a wet finger, rubbed the paper away leaving only the text on a transparent strip or dot.
  • Let dry completely and seal again with matte medium.

  2. Beautiful! What lovely colors. The dreamy look of the watercolor against the lines of the text make for such interesting contrast. xo
