Playing with masks!

This month I have been playing with some of the fabulous masks now available in the shop! I have to admit that I can't get enough of masks - they are now a staple part of my scrapbooking regime.

For my first layout I used  inks applied with a sponge through the creative workshop splats mask. I then cut small squares from the gorgeous MME meadow papers and stitched a frame around each of them to offset the photos of my son.

The second of my layouts is one of my granddaughters. This time I used markers with the mask by simply laying the mask down and scribbling over it with the different colours.
On the photo she was leaning against a climbing frame so I continued this to make a frame for the photo

and finally I used yet another mask (told you I was hooked!!) with Mr Hueys colour mists. When this was dry I stitched along the lines to echo the roof in the photo.
 I was hoping that by creating this layout my other half would finally take the hint and buy me this car for Christmas (I'm ever the optimist!)

Why not have a look at the great selection of masks now available and have a play yourself ?- they really are so versatile that you'll find yourself using them again and again - but creating different looks just by using different mediums with them. Be warned though, they should come with a 'highly addictive' sticker!

I used the following products:
Mr Hueys mask
Tile texture template
Splats template
echo park everday eclectic

Stunning pages, Tracie.
That first one is AMAZING! You may have just inspired me to start using the masks that I randomly buy with all good intentions x

These are just gorgeous! Love the Citroen Envy - I had the same thought though - you can't drive!
