CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Washi Tape

Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  Throughout this hop you will see creative ways to use one of today’s hot new products – Washi Tape!  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Joy McHargue.

Pennant Frame by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: My Creations Pennant Frame, Smoothie Striped Washi Tape, White Marquee Enamel Shapes, Sparkle Clear Flourishes – Small, and Lollydoodle Paper Packet.

I need to apologize that I don’t quite have my project finished but I didn’t get it done ahead of time and I am just too exhausted to finish.  I think you can get the idea though.  I used Washi Tape to cover the Pennant Frame and I love the look!

Now hop on over to Michelle Loncar!
