How Many Rolls of Washi Tape Do You Own?

Good morning friends.

Welcome to this month’s instalment of ‘How Many Do You Own?’  February is the month where we divulge how many rolls of washi tape we own.  Oh, we love our washi tapes as they come in a plethora of colours and patterns.  They are very reasonably priced, easy to use and absolutely ‘in’ at the moment.

My entire stash of 96 rolls  is photographed below – I did not realise until I organised my washi tapes for the photo just how many black and white ones I owned LOL.   The ‘birds on a wire’ is my all time favourite.

How many do you own? What is your favourite washi tape?  I would love to see a photo of your collection.

Please write in the comment section below and you could be one of the lucky 3 random winners of this wonderful Prima pack.  Winners will be announced same time, same place next month.

How Many Spray Inks Do You Own?

December’s ‘How Many Do You Own?’ competition invites you to count your spray inks.

Bon bon hat and inks-3

Why do we like our spray inks so much?

They look brilliant sprayed through stencils and onto stamps. They can cover chipboard with a simple press of the trigger and create great backgrounds. The inks can be bold splatters and torrential drips or a gentle mist. Haphazard dots regularly frequent our scrapbooking pages and ribbons and flowers can be coloured to match. The colours can be mixed or layered depending on the whether we dry the inks between applications. Some of the artier amongst us like to write and draw with the tube or dip in our paint brush. Resist patterns come up a treat when the ink is sprayed as the ink soaks into the paper but not the resist. The choice of colours and brands is endless and some companies like ‘October Afternoon’ have ranges with coordinating spray inks.

No wonder I have so many!

I have just tallied mine and I own 96 (yikes).  How about you?

Please count your stash and leave your total in the comments section below.

3 lucky random winners will receive a gorgeous Prima Pack.
