Fun with Washi

Here's another layout I completed as part of the Crafty Mysteries online crop with Victoria Marie Designs. This challenge had us use washi tape as a major element on a page. I'd printed a photo of my brand kit to hang by my computer and it was perfect for using a lot of washi. 

I went through my large washi collection and tried to find the color that best matched each of my blog color. Some of the colors aren't quite right, but that just means I can buy more washi, lol. Anyway, I used each color to make a flag, which I arranged vertically behind the photo. I covered two chipboard hearts with strips of polka dot washi to make the embellishments. The layout is sitting inside a 12" wooden panel board, painted with a black base coat and then Folk Art Extreme Glitter in black.  

This was a fun project to make, though perhaps strange for a scrapbook challenge. While it meets the criteria of the challenge, it doesn't really fit what I usually think of as scrapbooking. It's not meant to preserve a memory, has no title or journaling, and won't go into a scrapbook album with other layouts. That's the fun of challenges though - you never know what they'll inspire.
