Better than sliced bread...

Masking tape! I had come across it before i went to Japan - but of course had to seek it out while i was there..
i found a book on it..
I don't know the title but the ISBN is ISBN978-4-07-262088-5.
Here's an example of how you can use masking tape to collage a project...
the book has about 80 pages of actual pictures with projects which are lovely + inspirational.. there's also some history and info (but in Japanese).. the tape has various transparency properties (depending on the colour) so you can experiment with overlaying and adding it to your own collages.. more from the book here...

or, you can create pictures with it..
so that led to my own experimenting..
or combining it with rubber stamping too! Stick down some random shapes ... then carve out a stamp and ink over the top...
So of course Christmas is a good excuse.. to get yourself some masking tape and start creating.. embellishing all sorts of things! I do have a few rolls at my Etsy shop over here..

Masking tape?! Who would have thought? That's just so clever.
