I hope you are all enjoying a nice holiday break. Shame about the weather here in Auckland ! Although it has been so nice the last month or so we shouldn’t really complain! This weather has been a perfect excuse for me to catch up on some scrapbooking. I have a few things I can’t share yet as they are for DT commitments but I have two layouts I can.
Firstly, I played along with a challenge set over at Studio Calico to be inspired by Anna-Maria’s background techniques using positive and negative masking.
On my layout I used a Prima Mask which I applied a Gelato straight onto it. I concentrated more of the colour in the centre of my layout and less as we got further out towards the edge of my page. It did however get a bit stuck on the grooves of the mask so to make a dreamy washed out effect I added water to the brush that came with the set and washed it over the mask as well. I then added a piece of home made mask of hearts that I cut out on my cameo. This was something I had used previously for texture paste and gold MIST! I sprayed it with SC Mister Huey Heirloom Blue and tore it and added a piece under my photo.
I really wanted to keep the colours as monochromatic as possible with minimal embellishing. A few stars and wood veneers added to finish it off. My second layout is one I started I think for a challenge a month or so ago but never finished before the deadline. This one has lots of layers! And I just love the pics of Taylor dressed up first as a fairy and then as BATMAN. She makes a cute Batman or Spiderman. And she loves dressing up in general! Some details: Thanks for stopping by today!
