Real quick before I get into this post, don’t forget to leave a comment on the post from last week for a chance to win some fun stationery.
Aaaand, if you are in the San Fransisco area this week (Friday, Feb 21), please don’t forget to check out the 3636 Project where my art spoon will be amongst an amazing collection of art spoons on display at Paxton Gate.
Since I took this picture over a year ago, my collection may or may not have doubled, cough.
I’ve admitted to the problem of hoarding and yet, having a hard time actually using it. I use it so sparingly and a little goes a long way.
But most recently, I had the novel idea to put it on my walls. I’ve seen giant washi tape rolls used for decorating your walls before, but it had never occurred to me to use regular washi tape on the walls before now.
On Rosa‘s birthday, I wanted to post a special picture for her on instagram. I had the cupcake, but I wanted the shot to have a fun background. I thought I wish I could get a confetti-like background but with the cupcake and candle in the foreground I couldn’t just sprinkle confetti on a piece of paper like I usually do. I actually cut out small pieces of square origami paper and was about to try and stick them up on the wall before I realized (like a brick to the head) why not use washi tape.
I just cut little square-ish pieces and placed them randomly on the wall behind my drawing table in my studio. Now I have a pretty backdrop for when I want to take silly selfies.
