Hello, friends! Jana Eubank here with a fun technique for creating a page background using washi tape! The new DIY Shop collection includes these fun rolls of foiled tape. The background of the tape is a light kraft color with silver, gold, or copper foil patterns.
I love the shine of the foil on these tapes and thought it would be fun to create a shimmery background for this layout of my kids playing with fireflies for the first time on a summer vacation five years ago.
After creating the background, I arranged my black and white photos on top and then filled in around them with several firefly themed elements from the One Canoe Two Twilight collection. I used the Moxy Extra Fine Gold Glitter to add gold glitter accents to the wood veneer fireflies in the upper right corner of the page.
In the lower left corner of the page I added the jar and firefly die cut from the Twilight Ephemera pack. A smaller wood veneer shape accents the jar, repeating the wood material from the fireflies at the top of the page.
Finally, I fussy cut several blue flowers from a One Canoe Two patterned paper to fill in the spaces and add an outdoorsy feeling to this page.
I LOVE how this page came together! The foil tapes in the background were so much fun to use and helped to make this magical memory feel special!
