Homemade Washi Tape!!!


Well Darcy is back on the PA blog this week, she's been making her own washi tape and invited us to play along, see here.  I used different types of tape.  Top piece, masking tape, 2nd is some sort of steri tape, 3rd is Morrisons microporus tape, 4th and 6th are doubleside tape stuck to tissue paper and 5th is Wilkos clear washproof tape.

I coloured them using different shades of fresco paint and did some stencilling on them.


I stamped over the top in various Ink and the Dog images with stazon and stuck them on the backing paper.


Then I cut them into strips ready to use.  I couldn't make them any longer as I was governed by the size of the backing paper.  I was going to cut them flush but then decided it'll be easier to pull them off when I come to use them if there is a bit extra to get hold of.

Fast and fabulous! Really like these Sam. I especially like the steri tape one. It has an almost lace like look to it.

These look great and it's interesting that you used all different tapes. I just used masking, but I might pop into Wilkinsons and see what I can find! Julie Ann x

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
