Washi Tape Ideas

Washi tapes have been every planner addict's go-to item for embellishing journal spreads. It comes in all different sizes and designs that go with any personal style a crafter prefers. I became obsessed with them when I got my very first set of vintage-styled sets and discovered how multi-funcitonal they can be. From decorative accents to reinforcing edges, there are so many uses for this pretty little crafting tool.

I have also been using them as accents to my paintings as well and it makes the perfect addition.

A little introduction as to how I started using washi tapes as such: I started my crafting journey with calligraphy and watercolor. I was addicted to Prima Watercolor Confections when I discovered My Prima Planner Travel Journals, so instead of the regular watercolor sketchbooks out there, I used my travel journals to document my painting journey, and my growing intrigue over planners and travel journals led me to acquire (truth: HOARD) more crafting tools than I anticipated. And, yes, washi tapes were on the top of my list. Who knew such dainty little accents could make artworks look even more ethereal?

I am currently in a butterfly-frenzy as you can see with the pieces that I created. 

I simply trim out the edges of the washi tape, focusing on a single butterfly and lay them along my paintings. I also cut out small, random circular shapes from my washi tapes to add subtle effects. 


What I love most about the washi tape collections from Prima is that they work well together no matter what collection you use. I love how cohesive they still look even if I mix and match them. 

If you’re planning to try incorporating washi tapes into your very own artworks, don’t overthink what you’re doing, just enjoy the experiment!
