My first page for Love My Tapes!

Hello there and happy Friday!  I'm so excited to share with you guys my very first page for the Love My Tapes blog!  I'll be posting over there the 2nd and 4th Friday each month.  You should hop over there and check out what the other girls have created this week!

Alrighty...onto my page for today!  I created this layout using only one piece of plain white cardstock and one piece of patterned paper.  The rest is washi tape & lace tape.  I pulled out several patterns of black & teal tapes and just started layering them down as a background.  I love this technique because it's fast, there isn't a lot of cutting involved, and you can really mix up your tapes.  Mist up the background, or drip some paint, and your plain white cardstock is plain no more.

My sweet Reesie Cup was riding on her Daddy's shoulders here, and her hair was extra poofy for some reason.  It made me laugh because it reminds me of those big hairdos of all the Miss America contestants...haha!

The LMT lace tape is so cool and easy to use.  Just snip off however much you want to use, peel off the backing and stick it down!

I love that the washi tapes are so versatile...I used a small piece as an accent here.

I hope you'll give the washi tape background technique a try!  I'm so happy to be on this amazing team...I know you'll love what everyone creates and shares here with you.

Have a wonderful day!
