"Nap Time?" - Love My Tapes, printed kraft & washi tape on chipboard

Hi everyone - sharing another layout featuring Love My Tapes washi tapes. 

Little strips of washi tape make a fun border or mat for a photo, and they stuck quite well over the gesso and distress stains (I had my doubts...)

Do you still have gobs of raw chipboard in your stash like I do?   Larger shapes are super easy to cover with washi tape, giving them a whole new look.  Just peel & stick, and wrap the tape around the edges.  It has a little bit of flexibility, making this a simple job without the hassle of smoothing out a ton of wrinkles:

I really love pairing tapes with mixed media supplies.

How long have I had those chipboard paw prints and these letters?  Yikes - glad they are seeing some use though.  ;)

Thanks for visiting!
