Ok, I've got to be honest here. I never got the whole buzz about Washi tape. I had a few rolls, I used them in a few layout as a trim or on a corner of a picture here an there, but I never understood why some of my friends just had to have bags full of them.
I was nervous when given this assignment, I had my package of Washi tape on the corner of my scrapbooking table just staring at me, taunting me. So here I go, try to use the Washi tape in a whole new way.
The first technique I used was masking. Since Washi tape is repositionable, it was easy to use as a mask. I simply tore off different lengths and placed several strips on my cardstock. I them spread a generous amount of CTMH Create-a-shade pearl paint with a brush over the tape and let dry. Once dried I just peeled the tape off, revealing stripes on my cardstock
My Girl decorative tape. I then used leftovers I had from different collections such as Pink Paislee's Secret Crush paper, Bo Bunny's Zip-A-Dee-Doodle stickers, Cosmo Cricket's Sweet Disposition paper, stickers and chipboard alphabet (Check out the banner: I simply adore them! double sided so you can either use the plain side of the side with a letter!). To complete the layout I then added Prima and Maya Road flowers and a butterfly, CTMH hemp, and the very cute Fancy Pants' Be Loved buttons.
I hope you liked my take on Washi tape use. If you have other ways to use it, please comment below and let us know how you use it.
