A Little Bit of Sunshine

Today is day 3. The last day of my masks and stencils tutorial weekend.
Have you grabbed yourself a bargain whilst they have 25% off?
See here.

This is what we are making today.

Today we are taking a break from the lovely Dear Lizzy from American Crafts and playing with the very colourful Daily Grind from Simple Stories.

I didn't go a gathering for this one today. I was quite content with my 12x12 Simple Stories Sticker Sheets. They gave me so much to work with already. I didn't feel the need to reach for much else other than a piece of matching chipboard.

This whole LO starts off with a mask today.
The sunshine mask.
Now I call this technique, controlled misting. I don't know if it actually has a name, that's just what I call it when teaching. Misting can be a little unpredictable. Some (like me) like that, but that's not for everyone. This way is more suitable to the 'cleaner' scrapper.
So, lay your mask where you want it to be on your page. I laid my photo on top so I would get it exactly in place. I didn't want any excess misting going on today.
Now cover up EVERYWHERE else with scrap paper where you don't want to see any misting.
Like this.

Now you can mist over your mask.
You are left with this.
Once it's dry you can add your photo and stickers.
To finish it off I take another mask. One with small stars this time and lay over the LO.
I use a dauber pressed in ink and use that to press through the mask.
I love these stars.

My weekend blogging has come to an end here at Papermaze. I hope you have enjoyed.
Thank you for stopping by.
Happy Masking
