Washi (和紙) is a type ofpaper made in Japan. Washi is commonly made using fibers from the bark of the gampi tree.
Really who could not love washi tape.....it replaces ribbon in every way, shape and form. Not only does it replace.....it is actually so much better. WHY? you may ask. The answer......there is no dilemma on how to stick the stuff down....it is tape, so therefore, it is adhesive. Another advantage.....it is paper, so one can just tear it, as opposed to having to use a scissors. I mean c'mon, admit it....there is always that battle to get the ribbon to not unravel and have those tattered edges. Of course, with washi tape and all the different widths and colours it comes in, one can also layer it. Simply said..... I LOVE WASHI TAPE.
This layout was based on a sketch that Kelly Purkey had during her week of sketchbook. Wherever strips of patterned paper were used, I simply replaced them with washi tape. I also used the Jillibean white corrugated letters, and 7 gypsies 97% complete stickers.
BUT....best of all.....look.....look closely. Even closer now! Check out the stamp "information", which came from the new labels collection 1 set. I mean really, who could NOT want this set for journalling, and for those of you who don't love to journal, this set is great.....allows for just a matter of a few words. By the way.....you can also journal and stamp on WASHI.
Hope that you all get to use some soon....it's fun, you will like it and I promise you will want more of it.
