Hey, Nic here with a quick and easy layout using one of my current favourite products, Washi Tape!
I've been a fan of washi tape for a while now so I was thrilled when I saw Prima had some cool designs released. Why washi? Washi is versatile, quick, easy to use (just rip a piece off!) and the burst of colour or contrast it gives is a super cool addition to any project.
So - a project - now a while back I designed a layout I loved, it had strips of patterned paper and I used the 'design' over and over for various layouts. I decided it'd be cool to use Washi instead of some of the strips of patterned paper in the design so I gathered some Kraft cardstock, coloured sprays, Prima patterned paper, flowers and washi and got to work.
First step was to add my journaling to my 12x12 layout. I knew I wanted a long story and I knew I wanted it down the right side of my layout. I typed the journaling in Word and printed it on a normal piece of printer paper. I cut my Kraft cardstock where I knew it would be covered, I temporarily adhered it to the printer paper, fed it back through the printer and then joined my Kraft cardstock back together.
I added three strips of paper, two blue and one orange, all from the Zephyr range. I tucked a piece of lace in one layer and added some Glimmer Mist.
These two designs of washi caught my eye as the ones that would add that extra contrast where it was needed. Love the type font especially - I swear Prima released a heap of products especially for me this last release. Firstly the extremely teal Zephyr line, then this washi. Thank you Prima.
And kaboom. Extra contrast. Love it. What's cool is that you rip a piece off the washi roll, stick it down and it's repositionable, move it around, change your mind, too easy.
Add some cut out floral elements from a Rosarian paper, add some flowers and a few sparklies, some photos, (such a cute pup), and it's done.
