Repurposing first aid tape

I was organizing our linen closet and came across several rolls of first aid tape.  It certainly seemed like an excellent opportunity to stop what I was doing and go into my studio and make some washi tape! 

I placed a foot of tape and taped it to a sheet of freezer paper. I selected two hues of acrylic paint to create a pattern with a flat brush.  Memento Tuxedo Black ink was used to stamp the images -- Stampotique's mini city cube and tiny hand helds.  The tiny images were loosely painted with a small brush tip.   I used an XS Pitt pen to clean up the image as needed as well as drawing thin lines to define the edges of the color.  I used post-it notes to mask the tape and stamped text with my Stampotique collage definition stamp. 

I used one piece of my first aid washi tape around the bottom of a of a tool caddy that I've yet to complete.  Another piece went into my mini journal a reminder to make more!

Hope you'll try making some.  The tiny images are great for this project!
