Fragile Papers Washi Tape.

Still experimenting with fragile papers! Perhaps someone should tie my hands behind my back!

I saw an idea for backgrounds using washi tape in the latest Somerset Studio, so I had a play.

I started with a small box left over from Christmas. I painted it with Paperartsy fresco Baltic Blue.
Next I randomly stuck washi tape on the back in assorted patterns and colours and glued a layer of white tissue over the top. Next I gave it a watery wash of fresco Snowflake.

I stamped with Watering Can Archival some postmarks and script and stamped with random objects in fresco Sky and Snowflake.
I glued some images of ladies onto it and distressed the edges.

I was really pleased with how it came out, so I repeated the process in the recesses on the reverse!
