I'm really getting into washi. One of the awesome things about it is that it's removable/repositionable. However - if you're putting it on a surface that you've made with sprays and inks and stuff, it will lift some of it off, so be careful.
Crinkle it, tear it, stamp on it, color it, just stick it down
I have used to to make stripes of different lengths on cards and layouts. I pick several colors/patterns and tear or cut them to different lengths and lay them down on the paper making either rows or columns. The go ahead and do the card or layout--
I actually just started making my own Tissue Tape so it is the color and design that I want. I have several different "base" designs I keep on hand for quick use. I throw this tape on a page, or cover up a mistake, add a little variance between bold designs, and on my cards.
If you look up the NSBD challenges...there was one for using washi tape and there was a video attached showing several different ways to use washi tape.....
This is my LO that I entered for that challenge...I used washi tape to make the flag, the ribbon, tapes to the side of the pictures, the heart embellishments (tape on top of cardstock and then punched)..... Happy Birthday! By Kiyawinn
You can actually print easily onto your Washi tape. Just type what you want into the computer and print it off onto plain white paper. Then cover the print with your Washi tape (which is removable), re-insert your paper and re-print. That will line your print up on your Washi tape exactly as it was on your paper. Remove the tape and add it to your layout or card.
