This is my attempt to share how I make my own washi tape. I saw someone somewhere making washi tape with masking tape and I planned to do that, but when I saw some paper tape in the first aid section of Dollar Tree I decided to use it instead.
I needed some 1" washi tape to use in my planner. I got the idea for art journaling in my planner watching a Shemi Dixon video about what she is dong in hers. Go and watch it.
Put the paper tape on the smooth side of a thin plastic cutting mat. I got these in a 2 pack at Dollar Tree also. The picture below is some I did on a slick place mat. For some reason this did not work as well. It tears when you try to take it off. I did not have that problem with the ones on the cutting mat.
Paint the tape with the base coat color. I used a brayer to paint mine, because it lays down a smooth layer of paint.
Use household items to make marks on with paint. (I used acrylic paint for all of the paint steps)
Add paint with splatters, stencils and or bubble wrap etc... then add stamping with permanent ink.
Doodle with pens.
Use it and show it off.
