Washi Rainbows {Love My Tapes}

Happy Friday, friends!  I have a fun page to share with you today using lots of washi tape from Love My Tapes.  

Before I get to the details, I want to say that this is my final project for the Love My Tapes DT.  I have thoroughly enjoyed creating projects for the last four months, and I will truly miss working with the lovely ladies over there.  They are all so talented, and it has been a lot of fun!  A huge thanks to Tina and Annette for their leadership roles...I know it wasn't easy.  They were awesome, and I will miss them.

Now....on to my page!  You know I love rainbows, and they work really well when you have black and white photos.  I started with white cardstock and used an arrow template and black ink to create subtle arrows.  Next, I used a template I created using my Cameo.  I used rainbow colored spray inks to make sort of a "rainbow ombre" effect across the page.  I then pulled out a rainbow variety of washi tapes and just added a strip or two of each color.  Stamps came next...just random placement here and there.

I pulled out my little container of little multi-colored glass pebbles for this one....totally forgot about them!  I've had them for years.  A few flowers here and there finished it all off.  And I'm not a huge flower user...but sometimes I just have to pull them out :)

Surprise...I used buttons...haha!  Love how you can really see the cardstock texture up close.  Oh, that's a rub-on in there, too.

I love this technique...just winding up floss, twine or cord into a circle and gluing it down.  Looks like it just sort of fell there.  I love it!

I hope this rainbow inspires you to create something fun and bright today!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
