Hey, KOOL KATZ & KITTIES!
I'm still looking for Tapa style designs
We're now thinking possibly Sixties retro-ish. I might be making my own stamps,including some primitive dog images.
any suggestions or sources?

I'm interested, too. I am stuck with a plain white ceiling. I really want to do faint tapa designs in a very light tan/cream, but I don't know if I can get away with it. What I really want is grass matting or something, but that won't happen.

The University of Oregon has a nice web page with lots of pictures of their tapa collection -
Pretty cool stuff!

Do a search for tapa on ebay--always some nice pieces for inspiration there.
