Good morning my fellow scrappers,

In your scrappy shopping, has anyone come across a Washi-type tape that looks like masking tape? I'm looking to find some for a LO I'm putting together. TIA - keep a smile M.

You mean that pale kraft color? MT probably makes it, they have fabulous solid colors. Try ***, etsy, or if you have a Japantown-type area you might find it there. Actually - I haven't been to J-town in a while, maybe I'll go this weekend and look for you (and get some fresh octopus for dinner!)

You could also get plain white washi and color it with some Distress Ink.

Stick!!!!! You da bomb! That's it precisely! Thanks - I looked at MT's site and you were right, they have it. Thanks so much!!! (I know, too many exclamation marks - but that will finish off the LO for me)

I make a lot of my own washi with tissue paper and stamps....I pet a tan ink bad and rubbing it across some tissue paper you could make some that looks like masking tape.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! A big shout out to Stick for sending me washi tape she picked up. Can't thank you enough and I can't wait to finish these LO's. It's RAK's like this that are indicative of the type of people you can meet here on sb.com!

Just realized I had a ton of spelling errors. I make a lot of my own washi. What I didn't describe is I take the score tape and use several different sizes 1/4inch up to 1 inch put the tissue tape on top of the tape then cut against the edges of the tape. Once I have it all cut out I stamp it with different stamps....my fave is a woodgrain stamp.

Those are interesting ideas Jane. I had never even heard of Scor Tape and had to look it up.

These particular LO's I'm working on are with Karen Foster's 'Floor Plan' 12x12 as the basis. My DH and I have now been married 13 years, but in the first seven years of our marriage, we lived in five different homes (cities) due to transfers. Something special happened in each home, we met, got married and had a child in each home (minus the last two, I only have 3 kids ) So I'm putting a LO together for each address and wanted to adhere the 'notes' ie. special events, renovations, newlywed acquisitions with 'masking tape'

It works great and I love the look of it especially when I need woodgrain or something with arrows I'll color the tissue with what ever color I need for the arrows and then stamp the arrows in typically black.
