If anyone knows me they know, I love using Washi Tape. It’s easy to get creative when you are using something with endless potential. After 4 years of living in my small apartment with my boyfriend it feels like it’s time for a bit of change. I was getting a little bored of the piece that hung above our bed and wanted to add a little something extra to our plain old boring walls. We rent and my boyfriend doesn’t really like the idea of painting the walls to add a bit of colour to the room.
Our apartment has a lot of blues, greys, and red so I wanted to add something in the same colour family. Using Washi Tape, I created a geometrical mountain pattern. I first cut out pieces of kraft in the sizes that I wanted so I could map out where exactly I was going to tape off. I made outlines on the wall around my kraft pieces and then discarded them. I found it easiest to know exactly where I was going to tape off with the outlines. Once I had my mountains in place I just filled in the space.
I made each stripe the width of two pieces of tape and measured the spaces in between each one to make sure they’re look uniform. After I had everything taped off I cut off the excess making clean straight lines.
It took an afternoon to create and looks great! Now get out there and make something new with some Washi Tape!
