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.
Mixed Media Art Membership Group
Have you heard about the Mixed Media Art Membership Group? It's a monthly membership that I host that includes facilitated learning through a Project of the Month (with closed-captioned video instruction), Themed Challenge of the Month, a live Zoom Create-Along Session where we all work on our art together, and lots of resources such as the Project Vault, Technique Vault and Resource Library. Best of all is the supportive and inspiring community we enjoy in our private Facebook Group and the gated private forum on the site where I host the videos and resources.
The group is only open for new members a few times a year, so please add your name to the waiting list to be the first to know when the doors open again. Click here to add your name to the waiting list.
