Art Tape Play
Wouldn’t it be cool to create your own art tape to add to your art play? You can! All you need are some TCW stencils and acrylic paint, and some blank art tape from one of our partners, Thermoweb. Welcome, art friends, to a short but sweet tutorial on creating your own art tape.
Note: I am a Design Team member for The Crafter’s Workshop; however, even though I use and love their products, all opinions are solely my own.

Thermoweb – Rebekah Meier Designs Mixed Media Art Tape
various rubber stamps, black ink
To begin, I cut strips of Rebekah Meier Designs Mixed Media Art Tape and taped them to my craft mat. Next, I gessoed them using TCW9001 White Gesso or TCW9002 Black Gesso and let dry. After that, it was just a matter of collecting some stencils and creating.
From top to bottom 1-6:
#1 used TCW9021 Blueberry Pie with TCW743 Crazy Waves stencil.
#2 used TCW9015 Black Licorice with TCW739 Trendy Images and TCW686 Mini Julie’s Words
#3 used TCW9020 Raspberry with TCW741 Bubble Wrap and various stamps stamped with black ink
#4 used TCW9021 Blueberry Pie with TCW729 City Buildings which I then cut across the top to highlight the roofs (I’m using this on a piece of mail art very soon.)
#5 used TCW9020 Raspberry and TCW9017 Lemon Custard with TCW751 Kitchen Tiles
#6 used TCW9013 Iridescent Gold over TCW9002 Black Gesso with TCW719 Christmas Tree (Look for this to come back on a Christmas card. The black and gold look so rich together.)
The possiblilities are endless as to where to use these little goodies – tags, art journals, mail art, cards. What other places could you use them? Make some time for art tape play. You’ll be glad you did. And, make sure you share your projects with me on Instagram – @arteverydaystudio.
