This technique focuses on visual texture, rather than tactile texture.
Texture Technique: Print on book text paper. Use washi tape to temporarily adhere book text to a piece of copy paper and print an image using your computer. This is perfect for those who are not patient enough to paint on every single art journal page!
Tip: A lot of “washi” tapes are coated and the ink will bead up when using inkjet printers, so make sure you’re not printing directly on the washi tape.
Bonus Tip: Use cloth medical tape on a piece of copy paper to print directly onto the tape and create your own personalized “washi” tape. I would recommend using a very tight pattern of text or a very tightly patterned image. If you plan to color the washi tape, you may want to do so before printing as you can smear the inkjet image.
