All taped up! Who can resist it? Lots of types...duct, masking, washi, cellophane, print, post it...well you get the idea. I keep a technique journal, where I try things and record the process, so if I need to replicate it, I know how! Here are three art journal pages I did using tape in various forms.
After glazing this page and writing what I wanted on it, I began to layer tape all over it. Cheap cello tape is my favorite...the 39 cent kind from the dollar store. It doesn't lay very flat. So when I added a burnt umber glaze over top of it, all those wrinkles and bumps caught the glazing nicely.
When finished, this page had a 'leathery' appearance to the background. I tore pieces of brown packing tape (a paper tape) from Staples and layered all over the page. It has a bit of a waxy finish, so I sanded it to remove that. Then I finger smeared it with a Golden glaze called Asphaltum (which is essentially black).
The background of this page is made up of torn strips of masking tape. I tried to lay it down in such a way as to give a basket weave appearance. I painted the whole thing a bright fuschia, but wiped the top 2/3 with a paper towel to lighten.
