February challenge: Anything with Washi

Hi all! Donna here for today's post.

Wow time flies so fast, it's already February of 2013! That means, my birthday month :)
So for this month's theme, my project is all about using Washi tapes and of course, LOVE :)

Take a look and hope this will inspire you to create and join us this month over at Pretty Paper Studio.

I first applied gesso on the tag using a TCW template (6x6 Cosmic swirl). Before, I was using a sponge to dab the gesson on the surface, but using a stick is much better when I tried it. The definition of the design is more visible as you can see in the images.

I then adhered half of a doily in the middle. I used AC knock-outs border punch (Starter kit) to a strip of paper.

I wrote big letters L O V and E on a corrugated board and cut it. Adhering the washi tape is very easy. I stapled some parts to hold the washi tape better.

 I used stickles for that added punch: glittery and sparkly! I accented with some Maya Road heart pins, Pink Paislee Artisan chipboard, flower cutouts from a Dear Lizzy paper, lace, twine and flowers.

These are the four tags all together. Perfect for display or pinning to a board which I am doing now.

That's it, hope you like it!
Thanks and have a great day!
