Decorative Masking Tape

I had a couple of questions on the masking tape found in the July Add-On kit, so I wanted to post a layout and give a bit of insight on it...
I don't really measure it out, I just rip a piece off and go with the flow. When doing a grid type of formation like this one, I just play until I get it right. The bond on the tape is a bit forgiving, so if you need to pull it up and readjust, it compensates. I used 3 different types of the same colored tape in this one.
I simply chose a photo and embellishments, and put them on top of the design. If you wanted to use them as journaling strips, be sure to use a slick writer of some sort, as the coating on the tape won't absorb the ink otherwise. Nothing to it!
The same thing could easily be accomplished with strips of patterned paper, too. Kind of fun!!
(Journaling reads: "I hope you always stay close.")

Hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend!!

Cool technique. I never would have thought of that.

Thanks you guys!!

The tapes I used are actually not from Prima, but rather another company I found in my travels that makes tape exclusively. I do love the Prima's, though!!

Have a great weekend, all...
