Big Sister Layout

Supplies: Big Sister Quick Quote, all other supplies are Close to My Heart.

I am working on a stack of pages now that I have partially finished so they should go quick and I will have more to share for awhile.  Some of the layouts, like this one, are from swaps that I did.

CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Masking

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 12 of us highlighting the Masking Technique as shown on page 15 in the 2011 Autumn/Winter Idea Book!  Masking is when you use a piece of scrap paper to cover an image (or part of an image) so you can stamp around the original image.  Click here to watch a video that explains and shows masking in full detail.

This blog hop is a circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you are coming from Bethany’s Blog, you are on the right track!

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Cricut Art Philosophy Collection, Lagoon ink, Sunkiss Yellow ink, Blush ink, rubber brayerBaby Pink reinker, Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint, Ribbon Rounds – Blush Collection, White Daisy Cardstock, DCWV Alphabet Stickers, Studio18 Rhinestone Stickers, and Kaisercraft Rhinestones.  Layout is loosely based on a March 2008 Page Map sketch.

I used the Cricut to cut an image for my masking.  I used a brayer to apply ink over the mask to create my background.  Then, I misted with a spray pen filled with water, Baby Pink reinker, and Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint to add to my final background.  The accent flowers are scraps from the mask I used and they are inked with Sunkiss Yellow, Blush, and Lagoon.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue on to Judy’s Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!
