Tape it up!

Hi everyone,

It's Monday again, and Simon Says Stamp and Show is back  with a new challenge. This week we gonna tape things up! I just started with collecting washi tape, like everybody else..., and this is a great opportunity to get use some.

Recently I received a memo pad as a gift with an order and I was very happy with it because I always write everything on little notes. So I can't have enough of memo pads. Only I did not like the look of the box. What a great reason to alter it! Out came the gesso to prime the box. I let it dry for a bit. Then it was time to plat with my favorite colors of paint. And there is no surprise there, I really love my blue and green paints. To tone the bright colors down a bit I watered some gesso and gave it coat of white wash. I blotted some of it off with a crumpled up tissue to get some texture to the box. I kept it really simple with the washi tape. I like the look of it. I wanted to leave the washi tape roll hanging like you see on displays or canvasses, but figured that that wasn't practical at all.

To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
