Day One: Washi tape



Amy:  I have a very small washi collection.  Can you spot it on my card?  The lower half of the house and the 'flower fields' are made from washi tape.  I love that you can make it look 'uninterrupted'.  The black cardbase really makes everything pop, dontcha think?


Julie: Technically I don't have WASHI tape on my layout now!!! But I did when I started! I used my washi tape as a mask!! Once my background paper was dry, I peeled the tape off and splattered more mists on my page!! Have fun with the washi tapes!!!

Here is what it looked like when I had the Washi Tape on it --


And peeled off once dried -- 






Yvonne: This Lilo and Stitch box was from Hong Kong Disneyland. I love that it's a rocket.


The first thing I did was to spray-paint over the design on the cover, then added washi tape all over.


So I forgot to sand before I did the spray-paint [slaps own forehead], so it was patchy at spots when the paint dried. I decided to add corrugated board to the top exposing just a little of the gold spray paint. A photo of my niece, some trim and a leather rose from an old shoe and my project is saved....err...complete! *winks*

Great job, guys! I have lots of washi tape because A Muse Studio carries it, but I don't use it very often. Thanks for the inspiration!

Sue D said...

You have given me some great ideas for using washi tape.

You girls are amazing. Love this post, such fun projects. I do have a few washi tapes and almost never ever use them. Might need to change that!

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Yvonne and Amy... LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE your projects!!!!!!

maria f. said...

Use washi as a mask. Great idea. I love the look of those "white lines" on the LO and I imagine the washi looks pretty cool afterwards too with the mist on it. A two-fer.

~amy~ said...

Washi as a mask...excellent! Yvonne, you always amaze me with your knack for upcycling! Awesome projects ladies:)

Debbie P said...

Love these projects! I love Washi Tape. I always seem to use it sparingly, like I'm afraid to run out. Dumb!!! I need to see what I can come up with!!!

Helen Tilbury said...

Cute ideas girls - well done!

Cheryl said...

LOVE all of your examples!! Not sure what I'm going to be able to come up with for this one!

onecraftymama said...

LOL! I always use washi sparingly too - it's a roll, it's going to last a LONG time, and there is not a worldwide washi shortage ;) Hoarding is just one of those nonsensical things :)
Love these projects - and the fun house sketch! I've got everything printed out & BIG PLANS for crafting this week :)

Helen Tilbury said...

Hey I got this one done girls! I combined it with some DT work for Pandore but will try to get a post up this week (before the deadline!) about your challenges and my entries! Hopefully I'll manage to combine some others too. Here is mine http://helentilbury.blogspot.com/2012/10/small-and-cute-layout-les-papiers-de.html
Made me realise I need to get through that washi and that I don't know what to do with it! Plan on being much more adventurous with it in future!!

Merry said...

Fantastic uses of the washi tape...I will have to dig mine out and see what I come up with.

SHARADA DILIP said...

Carla said...

Here's mine! I completely forgot to post it here!

Is it possible to go overboard with washi? LOL! Had fun taping away on my project!
