Washi tapes, glitter tapes are a fun way to brighten up any project quickly and simply and they are the focus of this week’s readers challenge. Cluster them, layer them, use them as decorative elements or to actually stick your photos down! Washi tape comes in almost as many colours and patterns as coloured paper these days, and warning… they can become addictive!
We’d love to see your very own take on using washi, vellum or glitter tapes on your projects, whether it’s a card, a Project Life-style pocket page or a traditional scrapbook layout or even a beyond the page project. Please just make sure you use Aussie Scrap Source suppliers in your projects!
Email a picture of your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with a note about any techniques and a rough materials lists to be in the running to win a fabulous prize pack of some of the featured products by next Sunday 8th September.
Check out some of our tape products and projects from some of our favourite brands below to inspire you and of course we’ll be back on Wednesday with more jaw-dropping inspiration from our own design team.
October Afternoon have a super cute range of washi tapes, that both work with their patterned paper collections and individually.
This cool idea by October Afternoon Design Team member Vivian Masket turns them into super quick flags on a toothpick for this gorgeous card.
The talented Mou Saha incorporates them in three different ways on this stunning art journal page, including using them to cover a polaroid frame, and layering them to form an accent cluster.
Roree Rumph never fails to amaze with her beautiful card designs, and on this one she has used washi tape to create a frame around her card, as well as to make the flower petals. She notes that she dusted them with talcum powder to remove the stickiness and then looped and layered the strips. It probably smells awesome too!
Tina Walker from the My Minds Eye Design team has created this gorgeous framed project using the MME Find Your Wings and Fly collection. She has used washi tape to create the frame inside the frame. You can find a tutorial for this project on the MME blog here.
Missy Whidden is new to the My Minds Eye Design Team but she’s clearly no stranger to their decorative tape products! We love how she has incorporated them to reinforce the horizontal design of this stunning layout.
American Crafts has a massive range of glitter tapes as well as washi and ribbons which have been combined so beautifully by their Guest Designer Becki Adams to create an eyecatching background for this gorgeous page.
Chin Pooi turned American Crafts tape into gorgeous little blooms to adorn cards and layouts. She has even provided a tutorial on how to do this on the AC Blog here.
Bella Blvd designer Malika Kelly was inspired by a Pinterest link to create this fun layout using Bella Blvd Designer Tapes as a background for her monograms. You can read how she did this here.
Finally, Jennifer McGuire shows us how to use washi tape as a masking tool, rather than as a product on her cards. She shows a useful video tutorial on the Studio Calico blog here.
