Washi Tape Shadow BoxesWashi Shadow Box ArtworkThursday night my oldest sister arrived from Washington for a few days of creative girl time. After giving her a tour of my favorite shops in the Sellwood neighborhood on Friday we settled down at the dining room table for an evening of creative exploring. Our Friday outing included Collage craft supply store where I picked up 6 new rolls of washi tape from their vast selection to add to my collection of greens, blues and teals. With my sister practicing her zen tangle (she creates amazing frameable “doodles”), I began to “doodle” with the washi tape. A few hours later my creative play became a piece of art and I knew it was something I wanted to share with you today so I created a second piece to share my step-by-step. This project is so fun and simple. It is something you could do with kids. Though I show you how designed my pieces with a diagonal stripes, you can certainly create it in your own style. Below are the directions of my process. I started with an array of washi tape and the Ikea Ribba shadow box frame. I then added some of my favorite shells and corals into my shadow boxes. Go gather the little treasured you would like to display. . . and washi tape doodle with me! ~ Lia
