Our first day at the beach began with rain, driving rain. But as soon as the skies cleared, Kevin and his cousins hit the beach with their boards. They rode the waves for hours. When I wasn't videoing the boys coming in on a big wave, I was snapping pictures of their rears as they headed back out:
This layout, created with Scraptastic's Rock Lobster kit and add-on, features two pretty cool ways that washi tape can be used to embellish a page.
First, several pieces of tape folded over a length of bakers twine were cut into flag shapes for a colorful banner.
I also used washi tape with my sewing machine to create the large sun icon underneath the title. A few simple steps can be used to fashion any basic shape (heart, star, etc.) from tape:
- Lightly draw a shape directly on the background paper in pencil.
- Layer strips of washi tape to generously cover the penciled in shape. Do not press hard, as the excess tape will need to be removed after stitching.
- Machine stitch over the pencil lines. Repeat stitching. A tight stitch is recommended.
- Carefully peel back the tape pieces outside of the stitching and tear away to reveal the washi tape shape.
Finally, white embossed anchors dress up the flags along the bottom of the page:
I definitely had fun with this page!
