  • This is such a cute project I would love to make. Just can’t get my head around the whole washing tape and background stamp process. I’m a visual person. Would love to see a video for this!?

  • Marion:
    Glad you enjoyed the project and thanks for the question. Several strips of washi tape goes down first followed with the gesso. We’re working on a quick step-by-step picture how-to to help with the instructions; it should be up shortly.

    This would be a great project to do with fabric! We’re working on a how-to with pictures and hope to have it up soon. Thanks for checking out this mixed media project.
