Connections II

Connections II
Today I have two bookmarks/tags as the second in
the Connections Series. The green ribbon is woven
through screw punched holes on the watercolored paper
and looped out on the upper left corner.
I then edged the piece with tissue tape.

Here I painted wet-in-wet shapes of green and yellow
watercolor and then punched holes for the yellow yarn.
As a final touch I added striped washi tape on the edges.
Before washi tape was all the rage I would mask off my
edges and draw stripes with various gel pens...washi tape
saves so much time.

The quote is from Quiet Fire Design in Canada.
This is my entry to Summer of Color.

I haven't come across washi tape yet. But I like its effect. And I like how you've used the cord through the body of the card. It all works. Very nice! Julie

I just love your weaving styles, woven throughout the last couple of posts! Great tags! Your doodling is really fun too. I am truly enjoying the challenge of Kristin's Summer of Color. Thank you for stopping by, and for your kind comments! (I do love my toy fox terriors...and my creative play!) ~Kathy

I love that retro square stamp. Looks fresh and just right even though its retro. I always like yellow and green too!
