Paper tape week: day 5 - Neil

Neil is back today with an Art Journal page. He has used the Tim Holtz tape in a variety of way to show you how versatile it can be. 

To me, the Tim Holtz tissue tape is very similar to Washi tape so I tend to use it instead of.

I've just added it to the inked page randomly for interest. I then took a piece of string and used the tape to create a bit of bunting. It takes colour well as you can see.

 Then I took a tag and stamped the face of David onto it and used tissue tape to cover the whole tag before colouring with Distress inks and Perfect Pearl spray. If you look closely you can see that I've also used the tape to create a ribbon for the tag by folding a length of the tape in half joining the adhesive sides together. It's surprisingly strong! 

Neil used:
