Washi Tape Home Decor - DIY

Hello friends,

Have you noticed, its raining washi tapes here on the Lulupu blog. We started the month with a stunning vintage scrapbook layout from Jaya, followed by a beautiful memory box by Shilpa and an adorable file folder to store your dies by Hussena.  So have you started making your project for 

Challenge #37 - 
Anything with Washi 
(Click here to read the detailed post on this challenge)

1. Use atleast 3 different washi tapes
2. Incorporate a shape or a ready-made embellishment

My project this time is very different to my usual style - no texture paste, no mists. Couldn't resist a little bit of gesso and stamps while creating the layers though.

I love the Heidi Swapp Dreamy collection - soft colours, pastel shades, easy backgrounds to work with. Match them up with the ephemera pack, sugar dots, wood veneer and your all set to create a stunning project no matter card, layout or off the page.

We celebrated Father's Day this Sunday in Australia and I wanted to make something special to gift my hubby. Plus I've been wanting to make something for the empty walls of my house for a while now, so I altered a white photo collage frame into

It was not only fun, but super easy to create. First, stick 3 different washi atpes at random places on the frame. I've used the 'made with love', 'measured up' and 'golden script' tapes. Next cut some small squares of patter paper from the Heidi Swapp Dreamy paper pad, layer them and chose a focal embellishment or phrase sticker for the top layer. Also, cut two strips of banners for the top right frame. Embellish to your hearts content using sugar dots, the ephemera pack and wood veneer. Finally cut some words out using the silhouette cameo or an exacto knife and your all done!

We are waiting to see your creations linked up here. As always, there is an awesome prize up for grabs - the winner of this challenge gets this Hello Sunshine chipboard stickers

So, what are you waiting for.... dig out those washi tapes from your stash or order some from the Lulupu store and join the washi party with us. From neutral, vintage colours to bright whimsical prints there is a wide variety of washi tapes available on the Lulupu store.
