This post is all about our lov… obsession (!) with washi tape!
Imagine a never ending sticker – on a roll, in all the world’s most beautiful patterns and colors? And it already exists, and it is called washi tape. I think most of us already call ourselves curators of an extensive collection of this stuff already, right? And in any case, today’s prompt is “washi tape” for our Fill a tiny Journal project.
I am doing this project in a journal made by my friend Tammy, and together we put together a list of word prompts. You can jump in at any time to fill any tiny journal you can find around your house. Or make one. Tag us and have fun!
I love that stuff!
Plus washi tape (which is simply patterned paper tape) is semi-transparent which is one of my favorite things about washi tape – so perfect for layering in a journal or notebook. Love that stuff!
I still remember when I got my first rolls and how revolutionary the idea was to me. I added a few of my favorites onto this music sheet page in the journal Tammy made me:
The right page was half filled with a pale pink paint chip, so I watercolored a background for the top and lettered in “washi tape obsession – collect and use it up” inside a washi tape border:
Isn’t washi tape borders the happiest thing? I love how quick and easy it is to add in some bright patterns to a page using washi tape. Recently I filled a whole notebook with rainbow washi tape if you remember? So much fun!
Here’s my finished spread in my tiny journal:
It’s pretty quick and simple, but still sweet and happy. I like it. And the tiny notebook is almost full now. Next week I’ll post the last spread already. It went quickly, don’t you think?
