Day 1 {Make Madness} – Part 2 – Words & Washi Tape

Make Madness

Day 1 – Words & Washi Tape

 

 

feb9889685b606cd1a34192a9cf2cd4aI followed the instructions in this tutorial with mixed results.  01f727be9d1aecd0ec85fdc5adbe7a658b1b5a84ac

I printed lines of “thank you” and “whilewalkingmydogs.com” in different fonts.  I made sure to bold the fonts to ensure the maximum amount of ink on my paper.

01ad19f1b9ed1079bcaac72ec3f3e86de8dd4f2f33I chose a selection of washi tape rolls staying away from dark prints.  Even with the light prints, though, the letters were super light through the washi tape.  Although the tutorial didn’t say to do this, I used a bone folder to make sure the tape was pressed flat against the lettering.  I’m not sure I needed to do this because it resulted in pulling up the paper with one line of tape.  It’s sufficient to just secure the tape with your finger.

I used a piece of freezer paper to store the pieces of tape with words for future use.  This was fun to try, but really didn’t have the results I was hoping for.  I might try using black dye ink and my alphabet/word stamps to stamp phrases on top of the washi tape.  It may not look as neat as printed type, but it will be more visible.

Until tomorrow,

Grace

I’m not the craftiest dog around, but maybe you could also try white ink on the black dog paw washi tape you have?  I know that’s your favorite washi tape.

    Could you put the washi tape on the paper and then send that through the printer, effectively printing the words on the tape? Just wondering if that would give you bolder results… or it could end up messing up the printer. Nevermind. 🙂

      I actually had that thought. You’d just have to make sure the Washi tape was really flat on the paper. The thing I’m concerned about is – some Washi tape has a plastic-y feel to it. I don’t think the ink would absorb. I’m willing to give it a shot though.

I look forward to your thoughts
