The weather has turned here in Victoria, and today it is very wet and dull! I don’t need an excuse 😉 I am doing a shift at work this evening and then my big son is taking me to the movies. I thought I would have a break today and have a scrap. 🙂 As most of you know I have a nice collection of stencils and masks to use in my scrap booking! I use them all the time and they are now one of my ‘go to’ products 🙂 I am not really into all the arty stuff, but I like using them with paint, chalk, inks, stains, gesso and texture paste!
I thought I would have a go at this challenge at http://offtherailsscrapbooking.blogspot.com.au/2014/04/stencils-and-masks.html as it is what I love using and I wanted to have a go at using them in a different way! 🙂
I found this tutorial of Heidi using a mask for stamping and I thought I would give it a go. I used my Heidi Swapp Mega mask on the background and then stamped random images around it in Black Soot Distress ink. I also masked the Heidi Swapp bird on the top right corner of the photo and used some chalk inks. I used my She’s Savvy Kit from Scrapbook Savvy to create the rest of it and I am very happy with the way it has come together. I love the Thickers glitter alphas! This is my 3/50 layouts I am creating to dig into my stash and use some of it 🙂
The photo is of my sister and I outside the Melbourne Exhibition Building when we went to the Papercraft Expo a few weeks ago. We had a great day shopping together for our favourite bits and pieces and spending time together which is getting harder and harder these days!
Hop on over and have a go at this challenge and get out of your comfort zone if you haven’t tried using them
Happy Scrapping x
