Washi/Paper/Tissue tape - So versatile





Hello again!!  my third post today is to show you a challenge we were all set at our monthly Crop meeting yesterday.  Our lovely organisers Audrey and Suzy presented us with the bare chipboard photo frame that you can see above and told us to decorate it with whatever components we had in our tote bags!!!!

I have a fabulous collection of Washi/Paper/Tissue tape which I find so versatile when it comes to scrapbooking, so I decided to use my Tim Holtz Tissue tape to cover the frame, I chose a picture of my Daughter Janie, My Minds Eye accessory strip, a lovely Cheery Lynne corner die and flowers from non other than Prima.  Hey Presto we have an altered and very pretty photo frame.  

This is now sitting in my craft room on one of my shelves. I love it.
