At the Park Layout
by Melinda Spinks
Designer's Notes: Washi Tape and I have a handshake agreement... it sits still and looks pretty on my display and I leave it in peace, untouched! Don't get me wrong, I love washi tape, but I love looking at it more and have a hard time convincing myself that it needs to be used. So when we were challenged to 'use' our washi tape in a creative way I decided it was time to break with tradition and really 'let go' and start unrolling those gorgeous tapes.
I laid a bed of washi tape down the page to create the background for the little scene and then hand-stitched the finer details over the top of the tape.

Designer's Note: I wanted to create an entire layout using primarily washi tape! This is so easy to do with the fun and bright colors that Doodlebug has! Some techniques I used:
- To create the Rainbow, I used my die cut machine to cut out a rainbow on white cardstock. I then wrapped each section of the rainbow with a different color.
- I cut small banners of various lengths in the same rainbow colors and added them to the top and bottom of my layout.
- I used the red polka dot tape to create a border on both sides of the layout. To do this, I added the tape to white cardstock, and then used my border punch on the taped cardstock.
Some other ideas to note:
- I added twine in the same rainbow of colors.
- I added the same button colors on top of the banners.
- I added some Doodlebug flocking and pearls to give the clouds some added texture.
