Hello friends, Adrienne from @studio80design here to share a tutorial on how to create a fun washi tape swatch page in your bullet journal! Creating swatch pages is a great way to keep track of all your washi tape, and it adds some color to your pages! I’ve also found that washi tape looks very different on the roll versus when you actually unroll it and add it to your paper! Let’s get started!
Tools you’ll need:
- Archer and Olive A5 Signature Dot Grid Notebook
- Archer and Olive Washi Tape
- Tombow MONO Drawing Pen 03
- Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen
Next, use the Tombow MONO Drawing Pen 03 to draw paint brushes and paint rollers on the sides of the page. It helps to plan the page out before you ink, so you may choose to pencil everything in beforehand. I tried to make them all just a little different from each other!
A standard size washi tape roll takes up three squares in the dot grid notebook. I added an extra line in between each one so it wouldn’t be too crowded. Overall I was able to fit 8 spaces for washi tape swatches!
Grab your first washi tape and unroll it, measuring the distance you’ll need for the swatch. The first swatch goes on a roller, so I used scissors to round the corners on the tape. Then I ripped the other end so it would look more organic, like actual paint.
Continue to add the washi tape swatches on your page until it’s full! Erase any extra pencil marks, if you have them!
That’s all for this washi tape swatch page! I had so much fun creating this, and now I’m off to swatch the rest of my Archer and Olive washi tape! Don’t forget you can code STUDIO10 for 10% off on the Archer and Olive website, including washi tape! For more inspiration like this, make sure to follow me @studio80design!
