Washi, washi, washi

Inspiration Post for March 17 at Feeling Sketchy - by Debi Clark

I just love using Washi tape, so thought I would show you a few techniques 
that I use & have gone into making my card. 
My card is based on the Feeling Sketchy #80 sketch.

1.       I have used older & large chipboard alphas, that I probably wouldn’t have used otherwise. Then I patiently sat & wrapped the washi around the alphas.

2.  It then looks just like this!
2. Another technique is to have some backing paper, & layer on washi tape .......

like this....

Then draw a shape or two, whatever you like - I made triangles...

Fussy cut them out...

Then decorate your card as you choose!
I used the washi chippie alphas, the washi flags & then edged my card with more washi.
What do you think??

Thank you for looking...Happy Scrapping!

Cheers, Debi

Love, Love, Love

I was sent a wonderful little pack of the new range American Crafts 'Daydreamer' from the lovely Chelsea at ScrapBoutique. 
And I decided to use this challenge for March from Orange Paperie as an inspiration.

The challenge is to use a vintage photo with non vintage colours.  So here is a B & W wedding photo of hubby & I which is vintage...37 years ago, with Kraft, reds, grey & yellow tones.

 We both wore blue to our wedding, so it is scrap this B & W photo with fave colours of mine.

Thank you for looking,

Hugs xx

Lyn Butchart draws her inspiration from the vibrant, textural and ethereal spirit of nature.
Born in 1951 in Manildra NSW of Aboriginal Irish Swedish descent, Lyn has developed a unique individual style ranging from contemporary to abstract. Her fascination with the ocean inspires intricate underwater scenes, a theme she is renowned for.  She undertakes extremely large works on paper, some of the largest in Australia, and incorporates strong vibrant colours that bring harmony and balance to her paintings.  Lyn is a self taught artist with over 25 years tutoring experience. She has participated in many solo and group exhibitions, and her work is held in private and corporate collections worldwide. Her work has also been featured in numerous national art magazines featuring watercolour and mixed media works.  Lyn lives and works in Grafton northern New South Wales, and travels frequently to conduct workshops in regional areas around Australia.
