I’ve been at it again! Still loving the chalk-art look, on any surface or in any medium I can muster 🙂
I used paint pens to create this one. I’d love to play around with different colors and combinations of paint pens – I think the effect could be really cool!
I used a black pencil for these; I liked the contrast with the bright washi tape.
Now that I’ve got the hang of the lettering down a bit better, I want to play with embellishing the space, with flourishes or ribbons or things like that. Have you tried chalk art lettering? Any tips to share? I’ve yet to try it on an actual chalkboard, haha!
Washi tape seems to be the hottest thing in crafting right now. So I recently bought a few rolls to see what the fuss was all about. I don’t know if I’m hooked, but I’m definitely having fun coming up with crafts and ideas to use it! I’ve seen a few “dressed up notebooks” around Pinterest and Etsy lately, so I thought I’d try my hand at creating my own washi tape notebooks!
I found sets of 3 Moleskine kraft journals on Amazon for a pretty good price. I chose the kraft covers because I thought the tape would adhere best to this surface, and because the fun tape colors and patterns really pop against the neutral kraft paper! I especially love how the purples and blues look! These are my favorite combos.
Molly was my “photo assistant” for the day. Here, she wants you to see how cute these miniature rolls of washi tape are!
Are you a washi-fan or a washi-foe? What sort of cool washi-projects have you done? I’d love to know/see pictures!
