Are you a washi tape fan? Ever wonder how to create your own designs? Guest blogger Liva is here to show you how!
1. Cover thick transparency with double sided tape - choose whatever width works. Mine was about 1 1/2'' wide. It is possible to adhere tape in whatever direction as well, but I chose horizontal this time.
2. Remove the backing paper from tape and cover all surface with thin coat of gesso. Let it dry.
3. In any image editing software prepare an image you wish for your washi tape. In my case, I'm using Photoshop and have added several of my own digital patterned papers on one sheet.
4. Print you prepared image onto gessoed sheet and your washi is ready. It may not be as thin as washi or sometimes it is not so easy to tear it, but still it's quite transparent and you can have whatever image you wish to complement the design of your project.
I made a quick card using my new washi tape as small banners on twine.
Thanks so much for this cool tutorial, Liva! You can see more of Liva's work and her designs on her blog.
