Here is the other page that we made at club Saturday. This page I decided to create using a more distressed look. I used my distress kit from last year's catalogue to add some tea stain and blue aging to the page. I stamped the Distressed Dots background stamp at the bottom (I love that stamp!) using Summer Starfruit.
Here you can see some of the little washi tape I made - it blends in so well, I almost forgot it is not DSP! You can see the blue piece at the top - that is the stamp from the Elementary Elegance stamp set from Sale-a-Bration last year. I stamped it in Midnight Muse on tissue paper and glued it on with stick glue.
Note to self: Using an old dried up glue stick only results in tearing tissue paper and rendering it useless!!!
Here at the top of the page I stamped the flourish from the Creative Elements stamp and made some more washi with Summer Starfruit and another stamp from that set.
Note #2 to self: Liquid glue tends to show right through....only use stick glue for this technique!
All you need to create homemade washi is stick glue, tissue paper, and a stamp/ink! I told you it is super cheap and fun to make! See, even the hubbies will like that!!! ;)
