Another great deal at Big Lots yesterday: Elmer's brand washi tape was in packs of three rolls for $1. Each roll is 30 feet long. These were in the stationary aisle in my store.
I put some of the black and white washi on this card made from one of Julie's kits. I think the placement of the tree and washi stripes makes this one qualify for Paula's Rule of Thirds boot camp. I love reading her design lessons and was honored that she used one of my cards as an example. I never took any studio art classes after 8th grade, so all of my learning on the topic has either been theory (in Humanities class in high school) or through helping my college roommate with her projects. She majored in art but recognized that I had a better eye than she did for layout so she would always have me help her with her collage projects. All that is to say, I enjoy reading the theory behind why some of my cards work better than others! Now, I just have to remember to put it into practice all the time.
