Happy almost Friday!! :) Happy Thursday, just doesn't sound all that awesome!! But I do have an awesome Washi Tape to share with you today, that I used on a Halloween layout. I knew that the black & white "lace" patterned Washi Tape would be perfect for a Halloween page. I have held off using it, specifically for this layout. Here is the layout I created, and then I'll tell you how I used the tape:
I thought the tape would look great placed behind a negative cut title. I roughly measured the area for my title and cut it on my Expression. Then, I took three strips of the Washi Tape and lined them all up on a white piece of cardstock. After my title finished cutting, I just placed the Washi Tape piece behind it and then trimmed it down to the the size of my title spot! Very easy and I love the way it looks behind the Orange chevron...definitely got that "spooky" effect I was going for! This look could work for any of your tapes and layout themes, and it gives a little added interest to your title! Another great idea for this technique would be for negative cut shapes...circles, triangles, or whatever you decide to create!
I also added in some of the Mint Green diagonal Washi...I think it just might be my favorite!!
