Hello Fellow Scrappers!

Janelle here on the blog today to share a few tips I’ve learned on my digital scrapbooking journey about working with washi tape.  Let me first and foremost say, I’m no expert!  But, I love what I do and I love learning new things and sharing them with you!  You may know a better way to do this, but I wanted to share what I’ve learned because you never know who may find it useful!  I’ve made an easy to follow (hopefully) video tutorial that will show you a few tips to try when you’re working with washi tape.

I almost died when I had completed my video and was watching it because I realized I gave the wrong kit credit at the beginning on the video.  The kit my page is made from is Becca’s Forever Young, not the Little Miss Sunshine collab with Megan.  I used that to make this title graphic and got mixed up in the process!


I completely got mixed up and credited the wrong one.  I couldn’t bear the thought of starting my video over, so I apologize here for the miscredit!

This video is very basic and just gives you some tips to shadow, burn, and dodge your tape to help it look more realistic.  There is no right way to do this, and I’m sure that there are probably 100 more ways to make your washi look amazing, but I thought I’d share how I learned to do it, because I think it looks pretty good!  Once you’ve learned the basics I show you, you can play even more to customize your tape just the way you like it!

Without further ado, here is my tutorial:

One thing I forgot to mention in the video, the changes you make to your washi tape should be your final touch to your page.  Once you dodge or burn your tape, there’s no turning back.  You’d have to delete your tape and start with a new one if you decide it’s not right where you want it.

I hope you enjoyed the video and that you were able to learn something new!  If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to leave me a question in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer them!  Thanks for watching!
