Using Washi Tape in Your Layout Design

Good morning! Welcome to Saturday.

I created another layout using Washi Tape as a design element, as well as my standard cardstock.

Here’s a little tip: to keep the color integrity of your washi tape (because it’s so thin), layer it onto of a strip of white cardstock. The color will pop and won’t get lost in your background.

(I personally dislike colors bleeding through which is why I use this tip frequently in my artwork.)

I began with sketch inspiration from The Sweet Shoppe. Rather than continuing on with the double page spread as it appears in the sketch, I turned each side a quarter turn- counter-clockwise on the left and clockwise on the right.


The cardstock base comes from CTMH, while the patterned paper photo mats are SU. I cut the title using my cricut and embellished with the fabric flower (Recollections).

I hope you enjoyed today’s c+s layout. I’ll be back again real soon!
