Happy almost Friday!! :) Happy Thursday, just doesn't sound all that awesome!! But I do have an awesome Washi Tape from Love My Tapes to share with you today, that I used on a Halloween layout. I knew that the black & white "lace" patterned Washi Tape would be perfect for a Halloween page. I have held off using it, specifically for this layout. Here is the layout I created, and then I'll tell you how I used the tape:
I thought the tape would look great placed behind a negative cut title. I roughly measured the area for my title and cut it on my Expression. Then, I took three strips of the Washi Tape and lined them all up on a white piece of cardstock. After my title finished cutting, I just placed the Washi Tape piece behind it and then trimmed it down to the the size of my title spot! Very easy and I love the way it looks behind the Orange chevron...definitely got that "spooky" effect I was going for! This look could work for any of your tapes and layout themes, and it gives a little added interest to your title! Another great idea for this technique would be for negative cut shapes...circles, triangles, or whatever you decide to create!
I also added in some of the Mint Green diagonal Washi...I think it just might be my favorite!! And speaking of favorites...I am TOTALLY in LOVE with the Witch Hazel collection from October Afternoon. It is definitely my favorite Halloween line to date, from any company. I only ordered a small quantity, but I have a feeling that I will have some more of it in my cart on one of my online shopping stops!! I decided to add the chicken wire modeling paste on a whim and really loved how it popped on the Teal background paper. I thought about adding some mist over it for color, but decided I really liked the look of the stark white.
Thanks for stopping by today!! And make sure you check out Love My Tapes on Facebook, the Blog, and LMT is also now on Pinterest!!
