Masks and misteries




I have been playing with masks and misting this afternoon. I made the leaf mask for the Scrapgal Halloween challenge today. I began with a scrap of grungeboard (thanks to Lisa), I sprayed it with 2 coats of meadow green glimmer mist and then spritzed it with black cherry and coffee shop. I cut out the mask and then cut leaves out of the scraps. I love how the grungeboard curves with a little coaching. I then glued Prima leaves, grungeboard leaves, a Heidi Swapp flower, a small Prima glitter flower, and a bling gem onto the mask. I laid it on the piece of waste paper that I used as a mat and discovered how it made a nice vignette.
The top photo is a staged photo I did this afternoon for a design piece that I am doing next month as a Guest Designer but you will have to wait until then to see why I took the photo and exactly what it means.
Hope you are having a great week. And be sure to get us your favorite time of day layout by next Wednesday, October 14.
