Life is a State of Mind | Stash Bash

Hey there!

It's time for a new Stash Bash You-Tube hop, and this month we are focusing on twine or ribbon! I opted to de-stash some Washi tape!  This was a perfect challenge for me as I do not use a lot of Washi on my layouts.

Keep reading to the end for a list of the talented ladies hopping this month.

I wanted to create a layout, that was more my own personal style this month, which for me usually includes layers on patterned papers. 

I wanted to translate that to Washi tape, so I adhered the tapes I chose to use to scrap cardstock.  That way I could layer them like paper and I didn't run into any issues of them being translucent in spots that I didn't want them to be. It also allowed me to do a bit of border punching!

I also took the liberty to de-stash some older brads.

I added a bit of Washi to the edges of a tag, not only did it give me the opportunity to use more tape, but it allowed me to use the green tape / colour in three areas on my page.

I also had a bit of fun with painted circled, which I stamped using plastic cups in a variety of sizes.  Super fun technique and I love the look!

Final steps included splattering paint around my page.

You can see my process video below or on my You-Tube channel here.
