Make your own washi tape..

One of Darcy's makes over on the PaperArtsy blog his week is to make your own tissue/washi tape.  First you have to go and find suitable items from round the house.  

I only managed to come up with some very old bandage in the medicine cabinet and some sticky zinc oxide tape.



 I painted these with some of my Fresco paints as instructed


and then added some stamping.


I think they're very effective.  If you want to have a go pop over here for more instructions and tonight ideas on how to store you new tapes!

I used that paper plaster on a roll from the pound shop. Works well. Great colours and designs you have on yours.
