Plan and prep. Choose your colour scheme and your product. If you would like to replicate the design we have featured in this project, simply refer to list above. This tutorial will assume you’ve selected these items.
Frame prep. Remove temporary picture from frame and replace with white bristol board, while lightly marking the edges of the mat so you know how large your canvas will be.
Art creation. Then, remove bristol board from frame and use a ruler to find the center of the sheet. For this sized project, the overall center medallion design is 14 inches tall, and centered.
Medallion design setup. Measure and cut strips of Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Gold Diamonds to four (4) inches and use your ruler to position the first strips at the top of the 14 inch mark. Also, make another at the bottom, with six (6) inched in between the strips. Be sure to use your ruler to help you line up the pieces.
Medallion design. Then, place the next four (4) inch piece of Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Blue Weave, one (1) inch lower (vertically), compared to the first piece. Continue this pattern alternating colors as you go, and integrate Scotch® Expressions Magic™, Pink, Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Blurred Lines and Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, Bubble Dots. Don’t forget to replicate this design slightly smaller, for four mini-medallions around the central focal-point.
EXPERT TIP: Play around! Feel free to add fewer or more rows of tape to customize your medallion design the way you like it.
