The My Mind’s Eye Decorative Tape 8-pack got to be one of my current favorite ‘go-to’ embellishments! I have developed a washi obsession – it seems to be appearing on almost all of my latest projects! I just LOVE the different colors and patterns that can be found on the My Mind’s Eye tapes, and had so much fun creating a variety of projects this week. This week’s Monday Craft Madness theme…
A World of Washi!
Use washi tape on your projects!
I decided to make a fun collection of crafts this week – just in time to give you that crafty inspiration for all of your Easter projects. I first decided to make some Easter Wall Art, then a washi card and an Easter wreath!
I love seeing the different wall art themes that you can buy in the shops these days. So simple, yet so effective. I decided that I would do an Easter themed wall art using a cutting file from Silhouette with the different colored washi tapes underneath.
I painted an old picture frame and added washi strips and flowers to the frame for extra interest.
The Easter card was so quick and simple to make too!
The washi was used as a background embellishment and around the edge of the card to add a little more color. The image was from Bugaboo which I colored using prismacolor pencils.
When Brittany suggested making an Easter wreath, it seemed like a great idea! Then I thought ‘Oh! How do I do this with washi?’ This wreath was actually super simple to make! I bought a polystyrene wreath, which I painted white, and then began wrapping strips of the washi around it. I loved the effect!
I then tried wrapping the washi directly onto the plastic eggs, but it just kept creasing and didn’t look good! I ended up folding the washi in half lengthways and then sticking this around the eggs.
I hope I have inspired you to start work on your ‘washi’ projects this week. Remember, they can be any project you like – there are so many possibilities!
