Doe here with a super fun challenge and sketch. Before we get to this week’s Sketch+ Challenge. It’s time to announce our winner from last week!
Big congrats to Kelly Sroka! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get your prize sent out.
Alright. Now’s the time to pull out that huge stash of washi tape; you know that plastic bin you have hidden in your bedroom closet. I know you all have some ;). This is a safe space, no judgement. It’s okay to be addicted to washi. I LOVE washi!! All the pattern options and the ease of using it. It’s perfection.
The challenge today is to use your washi to make a large shape that will work as your crafty background. You can do this on a layout, on a card, etc.
Step One : Pull out some coordinating washi rolls. You can coordinate by color or pattern. Then, on your layout, lightly trace a large shape (heart, star, square, etc).
Step Two : Use your washi rolls to fill in the shape you’ve traced. You can use scissors to cut the edges or even a credit card (see tutorial HERE). Or, to make it even easier, you can cut out the shape after you’ve finished and then just glue the shape onto a new layout.
Step Three : Add photos, embellishments, and journaling! I haven’t done my journaling yet because it’s TOP SECRET! And I didn’t want to photograph it hehe.
I loved seeing everyone’s creations who participated last week. And I can’t wait to see what you guys do with your washi tape this week! Project entries are due by Wednesday Feb 15th at 9PM MST. Check back Thursday for another fun challenge & to see who won!
