Inspiration post by Valerie Andrieux : Two ways of using masks

Some of you have maybe already seen this layout before :


I made it as an example to use masks in an layout for one of my previous workshop. I added dimensions to one unique sheet of paper by simply using a white gel pen and white chalk.

I started by tracing a square in the center of the layout with the gel pen. Then, I use the Tim holtz compass mask with chalk outside the square (I did place a piece of paper to avoid chalk overlapping the inside).
Once all the compass done, I cleaned the mask and replace it at the exact same places to complete the pattern inside the square with the gel pen. Take a closer look :


It makes the inside square pops and looks like a different paper !

For the record, the pictures were taken in an ice rink inside a cruise boat sailing in the Carribean sea.

Have fun with this fun technique !

Moments in Time

Today I am sharing a little inspiration post.  How to make grunge flowers.
You don't need much to create the flowers but if you wanted to go the extra mile you can add all sorts of goodies to decorate the flowers further.
(Brads, rhinestones, stickles,dimensional glue or even paint or ink onto your flowers.)


How to????
First you will need some flower die cuts.  Any size or shape.  For this page I used two different flowers from My paper Garden. 
Brads.
Water in a small spray bottle.
Anything you like to decorate the flower.

Stack your die cuts and fasten them in the centre with a brad.

 Spritz some water on the card stock and scrunch up the flower to your desired shape and size.

Let the cardstock dry.  Decorate as desired.


Files I used
My paper garden Vol 2 Flower 1 and 4
