PACKING TAPE! OMG, packing tape can be used for SO many things in your journal and your art.  Beyond the obvious of adhering things to your work or for masking, you can use it for simple transfers and for resist areas when you’re painting.  I’ve been using it to lift pencil, pastel and watercolor off of some of my recent works.  THEN, I got a bunch of pastel dust on a light colored shirt.  What happens when you wipe that off? EXACTLY! You just rub it in.  So I reaches for me handily-dandily ol’ packing tape and sure enough: Lifted The Dust Off My Shirt!  Packing tape made it so that my wife didn’t kill me. :)
