Printing Washi Tape using Jacquard Neopaque and Lumiere Paints
Good Morning and Happy 2013! I wish you a Happy and Productive New Year. My new year is starting out well, I've signed up for a year long online class called Life Book and I watched my first video and have started my first class project. I'm excited to be participating.
I have to say that I recently watched a You Tube Video by the Journal Junkie http://feliciathejournaljunkie.blogspot.com/ printing "Washi Tape" with the Gelli Arts Gell Printing Plate and was inspired. I decided to give it a try using my Jacquard Neopaque Paints and loved the result. I printed these using similar techniques described in the video and there are a few things that I would do differently next time, I placed my masking tape on paper to print it and I would instead place it on a plastic sheet because by the time I took my tape off of the paper some of it had adhered to the paper. I'm sure that I have enough to use for a while however. LOL Here is a photo of the tapes that I printed.
Love it!!!! The tapes were easy to make and are gorgeous and what a great use of my Gelli Arts Printing Plate. Once I use these up I will do this again and it was certainly more economical that using purchased Washi Tape. I wonder do they make white masking tape? White would make a really gorgeous tape as well. Anyone know?
I then decided that I wanted to use some of it on a canvas and chose to use the red tape.
