Off To School ~Using Washi Tape on Your Layout

Hello Love My Tapes fans!  Lynn here today sharing my first post as a LMT designer!

I love using washi tape on my layouts.  There are so many different things you can do.  From creating your own background, to embellishments, to tearing it up to add some texture!

Here is what I created for you today:

First off I used the Rainbow Faded Stripes washi tape to create the border on each side of my layout..  Then I added some strips of  paper that I had in my stash and inked along the edges.  You can see in the photo below how I've tucked torn pieces of washi tape between the patterned papers.

I added some machine stitching directly on the washi tape for a fun effect.

I used Turquoise, Birds & Floral washi tape to create part of my title.  I simply adhered strips to a white piece of cardstock, then cut out the word "school" by hand.  Then I matted my word to another piece of white cardstock, cut it out, and traced around the letters.  I also used the School Lined washi tape to mat my photo!

An easy and fun way to use your tapes!
