Hi everybody, it's Anna-Maria here with a simple step-by-step tutorial with washi tapes!
In the coming weeks I will travel with my friends to Barcelona to teach the classes and spend some time in this beautiful city. It won't be my first time there, but I love collectiong my travel memories in mini-albums. So this time I will prepare for this trip. Before I leave Poland I will make a mini travel journal and I am going to complete it when I will be in BCN.
I found an old mini book (a kind of Polish-Italian phare book) and I decided to upcycling it into my album.
I would like to show you how I prepared my title page of my travel-journal using washi tapes.
What I used to create this page:
different kind of washi (of course!)
little printed map of Spain
gesso, watercolour paint, pencil
First I carefully cut 'Spain' from the printed cardstock - this is how I've made a kind of 'Spain' stencil.
Secondly I accentuate the edges of the outline on the front page. Next I cut out the 'Spain' and I covered the whole page by gesso (you can also use some white acrylic paint).
When it dried I rolled the sheet, glued a simple white cardstock and and some
stripes of different kinds of washi tapes.
I glued both pages together and in the end I add some watercolour paint (I indicated places where is the sea on the map), simple doodling drawing and wood veneers.
This is very simple and I find it attractive as a front page of my travel mini :) I hope I will show you more when I come back in October.
