"Washi" Kinda Girl

Hello my crafting friends (and others who visit here!)  Today is a "just because" post.  Truthfully I have not done one of these in a long time.  Everything I made time to post was for a design team project ~ no time for anything else.  But last week I had a bit of time so I spent it on me.  We all need that once in a while.

I am a scrapbooker at heart.  It is where my passion for paper crafting started and it probably will always be there.  I love to take pictures (much to my families chagrin.) But layouts take me a long time to do.  I need to be less of a perfectionist and just go for it.  Not in my nature though.  But I have found a compromise.  A SMASH book.  Layouts are fun, don't take me as long and do not need to be perfect ~ although my SMASH style is still somewhat "scrapbooky".....

Here is a page in my SMASH book that I created:

It uses strips of most of my Washi tape that I have along with a cute little image and sayings from Saturated Canary "Washi Kinda Girl".  A close up of her coloured with my Copic Markers:

Adding a little dimension to her head is an Action Wobble.  I really wanted her to wobble but she was too heavy for the placement of the wobble and just kinda rocked so I taped the bottom down.  Oh, and just for the record,  I have two more rolls of tape since doing this layout.  Yep, I think I am a little addicted!! 

Glad you could come by and see me today.  This month I have a few more things to show you for design teams too so drop in again soon.

P.S.  I found a couple of challenges to add her to (Thanks BFF!!!):   Simon Says "Use Washi Tape",
 One Crazy Stamper ~ Anything Goes and Inspire Me Fridays #92


  1. Heather, your smash page is AMAZING!!! Love that you used all your tape on your page and you have coloured the image just beautifully! (Love the little flowers you added too =)


  2. I love your Smash page! I've seen smash supplies and have heard people talking about smash, but have not seen anything actually created. So now I know what it looks like. I was wondering what it even was! Great page! Great post! Hugs :) Janis

  3. Love it! I will have to do a page like this.

  4. Smash book? Very cool, I think i need to make one too! thanks for playing along at OCS.
