Ever make a washi tape background for your projects? It's a great way to use up your stash.
I was putting away some rolls of washi tape the other day, and I decided to quickly do a background in my art journal with them.
As you can see, I should definitely try to use these more. They multiply like rabbits! I'm like a kid in a candy store when I see these and at an average of $1-2 a roll, it's easy to slip one into my cart on occasion.
I like mixing a variety of widths, colors, and patterns.
That Dina Wakley stamp looks so bold in her plain black-ink-on-white-paper that I decided not to color her at all (just hit the edges with black ink). I added some StencilGirl words (Carolyn Dube) and one of their grid stencils (MaryBeth Shaw). This is a little minimalist for me, but I like it.
