Tutorial to make a simple image transfer with vintage book pages

Here is a simple way to make an easy image transfer using vintage paper and packing tape and alcohol inks. Some vintage book pages make excellent transfers without having to make a copy of the page. Just put the tape over the book page and rub it down, then soak the tape and page in water and carefully rub the paper off the tape. If you need too spray a little more water on the paper to help it come off easier. When you finish you will be able to see the text on the tape, let it dry and then use a straw to blow alcohol inks across the sticky side of the tape. You can then use these taped images for tags or for journal embellishments.
