Hi Friends! It’s Rose here from @littlemissrose on Instagram and YouTube.  Today I’m going to show you how to make a quick and simple geometric cover page using just washi tape and watercolour paints.

1. Lay down your Washi Tape

Using some standard sized washi tape, lay it down on your page to create a border.  Make sure you really stick the washi tape down so that paint can’t get underneath it when it comes time to paint.

I decided to add my heading a third of the way down the page, so I stuck down some washi tape where I will later letter in my heading.

Next I used some thin washi tape (5mm wide) to create some geometric shapes on the page.  Again, make sure the washi tape is stuck down well.

2. Paint your Page

Once you’re happy with how you stuck down your washi tape.  Use watercolour paints to paint each shape.  You can choose a few colours or use a different colour for every single shape.  For my cover page I stuck with only 3 colours.

Let your pain fully dry before you move on to the next step.  If you don’t have watercolour paint, you can use any other kind of paint, felt pens, crayons, or coloured pencils.

 

3. Remove the Washi Tape

When the paint is dry slowly and carefully remove your washi tape.  A good tip for removing your washi tape is to pull it across the page instead of pulling it up and away from the page.  This will lessen the chances of ripping the page or removing paint from the page.

4. Finish off your Cover Page

Add the final details to your cover page.  I used a green calliograph pen to add a heading and then finished off the page with a gold acrylograph pen.  I used the gold pen to add a border and highlights to the lettering.

If creating this yourself seems a bit too much, then you can download a printable I’ve created for you here.  All you need to do is add a heading and stick it in your notebook.
