I've Said It Before!


And I'll say it again, I am certain that one of the Counterfeit Kit Design Team sneak a look at my photos before setting their challenges. 
This month there was a choice of either Shoreline or Totally Rad from Polly Scrap Kits and, knowing I wanted to scrap a photo from my Navy days, I chose the lovely Shoreline with its anchors.

So, have you hopped from Dawn's blog? If yes, you're hopefully hopping around with those of us taking part in the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop. This happens every month and is a great way of being taken out of your comfort zone. 
If I am lucky enough to have you as a follower, why not start at the beginning of the hop with Jemma HERE, you won't be disappointed.
Either way, why not join in next month and be a part of the blog hop?

So, onto this month's challenge...

Masking Challenge: 
Make your own or use one you have, but use a masking technique on your project!
There are some great links for ideas on the CKCB site HERE

I have recently started buying a lot of masks (and using them) but, as this is a forging challenge, I decided to make my own. Nothing special, but using my Cricut I created my title to cut out to use as a mask. I then used acrylic paint to dab over it so I was left with the negative effect.




Have you made your own mask?
Can I tempt you to make one? 

I would love it if you could leave me a comment to let me know you have stopped by before hopping over to Maggie in France to see whether she was tempted to make her own....

  4. Actually I really pushed myself of of the zone recently and used mixed letter stickers as a mask for my funky title recently. But your title is so perfectly made that perhaps I should give it a second try. Great layout.

  7. Yep, I love making masks on my Silhouette (so much cheaper than buying them, and you don't have to use them too many times to get their "value"! Love how you've made yours to suit the theme of your page.

  10. Excellent job making your own mask! I don't do a lot of masking - I'm more of a collector (hehehe). But I do love to make my own and that is the one thing that my Cricut has paid for itself in! Well, that and looking pretty!
