Abstract Washi

Usually when I create with Washi Tape, I try to be very straight and precise, lining-up up each piece next to the other.  But Washi Tape is also perfect for more random, abstract designs.

For today's cards, I started with scraps of cardstock slightly larger than what I wanted for my finished card and just started randomly attaching pieces of washi tape until it felt right.

Next I trimmed the overlapping pieces of tape and added some Yoga Cat brads and a fun Charmed Cat 2 Sentiment from Paper Smooches.  A few more layers of cardstock, and this card was done.  If you're a cat lover, Eyelet Outlet has lots of cat-themed fun.

This technique works with wide washi tape too, although the card will need to be a bit larger to get the same effect.  As you can see, the color of cardstock you use also changes the look of the design.

For this one, I finished with a single Road Side Thank You Arrow Brad and just let the Bicycles be the focus o the design.

I hope I've encouraged you to have some abstract fun with your washi tapes ... enjoy.
