Ok, I am back and have so much to talk about over the next week so I will be blogging a little more. But today, I have a design team layout to share for Paper Issues.
The theme this issue is Mix Tapes which can also include a variety of ideas such as:
*Music of course (mix tapes, current favorites or playlists, favorite bands, song lyrics etc...)
*Mixing up product brands or type on a project
*Washi or other tapes
*Reminiscing about music media from the past (cassettes, records, 8 tracks)
*Mixing it up in the kitchen
and more. There are so many possibilities!
So remember back in April when I said I wanted to create a layout from *this post* about The National? Well I did it!
Our sponsor for this issue is Hazel and Ruby and they sent us a ton of great washi tapes to work with.
I chose these two for my project,:
This tape was exactly what I needed for my "list" of songs. I mounted strips of the tape on white cardstock and then hand cut each pieced that I wanted. Using a Moonlight White stamp ink pad by Brillance, I was able to stamp song titles on each "chalkboard" piece. I didn't fit all ten songs on the page, but seven were enough. :)
The photo is mounted on 3x4 paper cards from the July swag bag in the Paper Issues shop which is currently sold out. But the August ones should be available this week!
If you would like to play along, you can link up your projects *here* for a chance to win a fun grab bag from Hazel and Ruby. The deadline is Sunday, August 17th.
Thanks for stopping by today!
