It's surprising how many office supplies can be multi-purpose in the art & craft world.  I remember many years ago using one of the white-out correction tapes to add random white areas to an atc and as it was an old tape, it didn't work very well but the more scratchy and grungy look suited perfectly what I was trying to achieve.  In this class we'll be using the Dot Liner tapes that are adhesive tapes but not in a solid block, they have little dots or even hearts on them as the adhesive.  The brand I found at Officeworks here in Australia was called Kokuyo and here is a link to the dots, this is the link to the hearts.   You can get refills for both too!

So because they are sticky I applied 3 different techniques to them.  The first one was embossing powder, the second was foil (absolutely gorgeous!!!) and finally Perfect Pearls (this was the most subtle).  Of course, you don't have to use the dot liners, you can always just use your normal adhesive rollers but then you just get a plain solid line (which may suit your specific piece), these just give you an alternative.
