THE WONDER OF WASHI....

This month at Fantastic Ribbons we all got to play with Washi Tape...well that was like giving sweets to a toddler.... I LOVE LOVE LOVE Washi. 
We (the design team) told each other what we were going to do and OH boy, you'll need to keep in touch with the blog as they have got some amazing ideas...Esp..SJ....so cool.
Anyhoo's, I decided to part cover a book with mine, but I also thought Id have a little experiment, so I covered some white Bazzill Card stock with it and then die cut out a couple of flourishes, it wasn't the colour I wanted to I coloured it with Pro Markers...Perfect, it worked!!! and the joy is you can still see the pattern through it, then I wanted to make a flower, I know, I try and make flowers out of anything, but this was FAB, I just started with a circle of Bazzill and then started pleating and sticking as I went round, I did a couple of layers and then added a yummy button to finish it off. 
Quick tip: if you make an embellie from it and don't want it to be sticky on the backside, just add a spot of talcum powder, that will stop it sticking to things you don't want it to stick to :) :)

Maybe that's why our mums used to put talc on our backsides?
