This week at the Friday Mashup Lili is bringing us a fun themed challenge...
- Create a project using the "Masking Technique".
- Create a project with some "Beach elements".
- Or Mash it Up and create a "Beach'y project using Masking".
I stamped the frame from Papaya Collage onto Whisper White with stazon first of all, then masked off the inside with sticky notes. I stamped one shell in the corner using Baked Brown Sugar ink, then created a shell mask, attached it over the top and stamped another one, then covered that with another shell mask. I then brayered some Soft Sky ink in the top section, masked off a straight 'horizon' line as well as a torn 'sand' line, then brayered in between with Marina Mist and Tempting Turquoise ink. I then put the reverse of the torn mask back on and sponged So Saffron, Crumb Cake and a bit of Baked Brown Sugar ink to create the sand. When all the sticky note masks were removed I had a lovely little beach scene sitting inside my frame! I stamped another shell in Baked Brown Sugar on Shimmery White card and went over it with an aqua brush to blend the ink a little, then cut it out and popped it over the corner of the frame using dimensionals. The sentiment is from Trust God, stamped in Stazon over the background (I wasn't happy with the intensity of the colour though to I went back and traced over it with a Basic Black marker).
The background was a little idea I had to make it look like a weather-boarded beach house... I stamped the Woodgrain Background on Smoky Slate with Smoky Slate ink, then cut into strips to make the boards. I lightly sponged around the edges of each strip then assembled them onto a piece of card, alternating the placement to create the boarded effect (kinda another version of the brick wall technique from a couple of weeks ago). I 'hung' the picture on the wall using some white baker's twine and an antique brad.
Make sure you check out the other beach-y creations of the design team (although, be warned: they may make you want to go on holiday lol!).
Thanks for stopping by...
