Let's get to know Ashli a little better..
I have been an artist my entire life. I followed my dreams and attended art school here in my home state of Georgia. While I mostly wanted to play with paint and glue, I chose a more sensible major of Digital Multi-Media and Photography. After working in that industry on and off, I put my computer and brushes aside to start my family. Never in a million years did I think that scrapbooking and the paper craft industry would re-awaken the artist in me that I had put away so many years ago. Thanks to a good friend who showed me the ropes just one short year ago, I have jumped into a pile of pretty paper and I am never looking back.I am not afraid to play, experiment, and make mistakes. Today's mistake might just be tomorrow's masterpiece. Armed with my beloved pens, mists and patterned paper, I anxiously await my next crafty adventure!
Ashli went a little crazy with the LMT product and created some amazing layouts. Let's check them out and here what she had to say about them.
Hello, hello! Ashli Oliver here, aka soapHOUSEmama from PurpleMailbox.com. I am thrilled to be joining you at Love My Tapes this month!
I was sent the most beautiful tapes to work with and I can't wait to show you what I came up with. First up, we have a little fabric tape action. This was my first time to work with fabric tape and it did not disappoint! My favorite thing about it is the texture you get when it is torn lengthwise. So, I did a bunch of tearing...
Then rolling into flowers:
And die cutting into tags:
Such beautiful texture!
You like my fashion?
I hope so! I am just getting started with this washi goodness :)
Here is another fun project. One of the best things about washi is how much you get on one little roll. Enough to do fun things like cover an entire background with it!
Oh yes, you have complete permission to get carried up, up and away...
And, as you can see... you can even stamp and doodle on top! Gotta love it :)
I am having too much fun here. In fact, I hope to see you again as I show you what else this washi wonderland is doing in my craft room.
Thank you Ashli. We really enjoyed your creative use of washi and love how it looks on your layouts. We can't wait to see what else you create!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
