I’ve had quite a few people ask me where I get the paper circle drywall tape. My answer: Lowe’s! It’s the only place I’ve ever found the stuff and it’s fairly reasonably priced, as well. I decided since I knew what I was looking for, I’d find it online and post a link here. Hopefully this helps you find the tape I know you want (and need)!
This art journal page was made while I was heavily medicated with Sweet Tea Vodka, which is why it looks like I finished the page in the middle, then decided the next day to redo it! Never be afraid to cover up your ugly pages! This page was made using silver spray paint, drywall tape (as a stencil), acrylic paint, Dylusions, and Heidi Swapp Colorshine.

The P page was a lot of fun to make, though it turns out being one of my least favorites. I had a lot of fun playing with paint marbling and added a boatload of texture using drywall tape! Guess I forgot to post this one to my blog. Shame on me!
This is one of my personal art journal pages. I love it so much that I thought I’d share it with all of my little Imps!
This page was made by inking the background with Distress Ink (Broken China and Spiced Marmalade, maybe?) and then putting some drywall tape and washi tape on top of it. Then, I applied gesso with a dry brush. Once it was dry, I picked up some Dylusions in “Squeezed Orange” with a paint brush and brushed it over the gesso. After that, I added the “Laugh” starburst design and cut out a Spellbinders (Labels 16) die-cut, then framed the whole thing using black Gelato by smearing it with my finger.
I’m a big ol’ clown, if you hadn’t noticed by now, and I love making people laugh and always laughing myself. This day, I was feeling kind of down and when I found that collage element, I knew it was speaking to me! Use your art journal to remind yourself about the good things in life to help flush the negative. It’s a great use of the therapeutic nature of art.
I started this page with a layer of about 4 different colors of Neocolor II crayons. I scribbled the crayons onto my non-stick craft sheet then sprayed them with water and brushed them on individually with a paint brush. Then, I put some drywall tape and sprayed Dylusions in Funky Fuchsia along the top and dripped it down. I added some journaling and called it a successful 5-minute art journal page!
So, I’m really bad at following rules. I’ve gotten into trouble at work before for dressing inappropriately, I’ve driven past the speed limit, and I have worn shoes without socks. I’m a bad kid. Okay, I’m really not that bad, but I have a hard time following rules I consider silly or pointless. I wouldn’t say that my five minute restriction for these pages is silly or pointless, but I am not going to beat myself up about a self-imposed rule.
This page was easy to make. I put two different types of drywall tape on the page, then added Neocolor IIs in 3 different colors all around the page. Then, I added water to smooth and blend the colors together. Then, I splattered some black watercolor (meh). Once the page was dry, the drywall tape peeled right up and left a cool stenciled pattern. I added some simple journaling and called it a day!
This page is simple but was really me just playing with my newest colors of Dylusions. It took slightly longer than five minutes :::innocently whistling::: because I wanted to do a slight resist. I stamped using Versamark ink and added UTEE to it (I should have used a finer granule of emobssing powder as the stamp is very fine and UTEE is super chunky), then I added some drywall tape to the page, sprayed Funky Fuschia, Calypso Teal, and After Midnight Dylusions onto this page, dried it, stamped a few random stamps, and then wrote my statement with black pen and outlined it in white.
Simple-ish page, but not one of my favorites. That’s okay. Some pages aren’t fabulous. Some pages just are.
