The last 6 weeks or so, have been a blur for me. Lots of highs and lows. The loss of my beloved Gram, a week spent with my amazing parents, my lovely funny sister, my delightful aunts, uncles and many cousins! Then a much anticipated annual girls trip and inbetween-lots of design work! I am so excited to share the projects I created for We R Memory Keepers HSN & Craft and Create segments. The products that I was assigned were the Evolution and Watercolor Washi tape. I LOVE MY JOB!
Watercolor Washi tape creations!
I wrapped/covered a variety of white buttons with the two patterns of gray Watercolor Washi. I hotglued the buttons to a prepainted frame. Don't you just love the dimension and fun whimsy!!!
I dug in my stash and found this 12x12 Amanda bare elements frame from Creative Imaginations. I created a diagonal pattern with the two patterns of coral Watercolor Washi and covered the entire frame! I am smitten with the end result!
To create this layout of my beautiful neice Sienna, I wanted to use washi in couple of different ways. Firstly, I drew a circle onto white cardstock with a pencil, then I created this sunburst element, by sticking a straight edge of washi on the pencil line and tearing the opposite end, in varying lengths, around the entire circle. I love lots of texture and layering, so I used WE R's velvet ribbon, along with a fringed strip of patterned paper and a washi tape pleated strip, to highlight the photo. To finish the layout, I added her name in We R's chipboard letters and some We R enamel dots and hearts.
For this layout of my gorgeous daughter, Miranda, I started with the quote/title! I love the quote, Live a Colorful Life! I make a conscious effort to live a colorful life, myself and have tried to instill the same in Miranda. To enforce the colorful theme, I added strips of each color of Watercolor Washi flush on the right side of a sheet of white cardstock, then added buttons of each color to add dimension and to build on the color theme. Lastly, I created a Washi tape frame around the photo and added the title.
I covered ordinary household clothespins with 4 shades of Watercolor Washi tape and clipped them to a chipboard ring, in a simple pattern to create this quick everyday wreath for my front door!
I always carry little notebooks with me, I especially love little composition books-to jazz this one up, I simply added diagonal strips of many colors and patterns to the front and back covers! Super cute and quick gift idea!
Taking the same concept I used on the 'Live a Colorful Life' layout, I created this simple and stunning thank you card!
I love that even little bits of washi tape can take a card to the next level! Here, I simply, added a few strips to a piece of patterned paper and a cute little washi tape flag added to a office paperclip!
By simply lining up strips of washi tape and adding a bow-there is no doubt of the warm birthday greeting conveyed with this sweet little card!
Another example of layering different elements and getting a beautiful results! The Watercolor Washi tape strips,paper doily, embossed cardstock sticker, and enamel dots all work in perfect harmony!
