*Today I have a really nice guest post from Barbara, enjoy!
New year comes, new ideas do too. I am currently renovating my studio space and these days I often look around for inspiration. Doing that, I did realized that I never spoke about anything remotely near to my tastes of contemporary fashion and interior design before on these pages. On my blog I don't speak about fashion, styling and interior design. Thought I love such arguments, I don't feel confident enough to speak about them with such experts as Drastic Plastic author and readers are. In my humble way, I'll share something I feel in love with a long time ago and that may turns out to be helpful to your fashionista ideas when you deal with styling, accessories or photo shoots.
The object in question is called Washi Tape and it's literally a tape made with washi, a style of Japanese rice paper. This idea was first introduced in 2006 , when a group of artists approached a Japanese tape manufacturer, Kamoi Kakoshi, and handed a book with their Art created using tapes by the said company. Later washi tape quickly became a trend well-known all over the planet.
Washi tape is a terrific object because you can use it for many decorating purposes, be it for your accessories, your interior décor or Art. It got a practical side, you can use it on surfaces like papers and such and take it off without ruining them. I found this to be really amazing. There is a huge collection of washi tapes around and it's really fun shopping.
Amazing shops can be found on Etsy, but places like Cute Tape and Hey Kessy are definitely worth mentioning.
If you are looking for some Washi Tape Inspirations (they can help you create some unique gift for friends and family!), places like Scraphacker share amazing ideas. Just google out for it!
