FWF Friday - Art Journaling with Washi Tape Flowers

Art Journal Friday

It's Friday and time for a little Unity FWF and Art Journal Friday!  This week in my journal I decided to play with washi tape!  You know you have some in your stash, it's getting to be a bigger and bigger trend.  Love the stuff, so much fun to just play around with.

Here is my two page spread for this week:


Taking a picture of this one was an adventure as I tried and tried, but for some reason this seriously looks so much better in real life!  Well anyhow, I used lots and lots of Unity stamps and washi tape!

The flowers is a big stamp by Unity called Donnas Poppy Background.

Some of the other stamps I used include:  Hearts of Old, She script,  moment by moment .  The "spiral" butterfly is old Unity but I couldn't locate it to link it, perhaps that one is retired.  On the flowers I used the words from Bloom and Simplify.




This week I also did a video sharing how I made the washi tape flowers.




Well that's all for this week!  Swing on by tomorrow for a card I made for this week's Just Us Girls Challenge using one of the Unity Fashionistas!

Till later!

Maria I like using these colours too but my camera doesn't like some of the tones either. That doesn't stop us from admiring the wonderful art you have made. Love it!

This is awesome! I love this unity stamp and started my own journal page for the eP challenge and ended up turning it over and going with something else! I love the washi tape you've added! I think I need to go back to the drawing boards.
