Washi Stash!

Wowee!  It feels like forever since I blogged.  It's been one of those weeks where all the ideas to create something flood in my brain while I'm working, and no where near my crafty space!  Ever have those days?!  Unfortunately I've been working long hours so by the time I come home I'm pooped!  Tonight though, I'm on a mission!  I've been itching to enter this years Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Gallery Idol 2014 with the theme of washi tape!

Wanna see my washi stash?!

There is my crazy collection!  
My favorites are the ones at the bottom...Doodlebug Designs Candy Stripes Assortment!  I love the smaller width and the rainbow of colors is just yummy!  

Here's what I came up with for the contest...

This was the perfect pick me up creation for me!  I created the background with Old Paper Distress Ink stamped with Lawn Fawn's Woodgrain Backdrop in Scattered Straw adhered on Bazzill Yukon Gold cardstock.  I started with a circle die cut and ruffled up the washi tape starting from the outside edge, working my way inward with the rainbow of colors. To finish the center I adhered Doodlebug Designs sequins in Lilac.  The leaves were created using strips of washi tape and die cutting with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Leaves Die.  The flower was mounted using foam tape and finished off with a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Summertime Charm.

I hope this brightens your day as it has mine!  Hope to see you in the gallery as well!  Mahalo for stopping by!
