Since it's October...

How about a Mask?

I used this great Tim Holtz mask from the October kit for a couple of projects.

First, a card:

I want to give you a couple of tips:
1) the mask worked better for me with the addition of a little spray adhesive
2) I tried several methods (inking, painting), but found spray mists to work best

For my card, I masked a piece of flat white paper and sprayed with Maya mist. I then cut out the masked image in a circle to add to my card.

and a layout:

I wanted a whole page effect, even though the mask is a mini, so I planned approximately where I wanted the picture to go and then stuck the mask down and sprayed. I wanted a less perfect coverage of the mist. Again, I used Maya mist, because that's what I have that matches this month's kit! :)

If you take note of the green leaves, I used the mask for them too, spraying with Tattered Angels glimmer mist, and then cut them out. That was an easy way to use the mask for an embellishment with dimension.

It really took a bit of trial and error working with this, but I enjoyed what I created in the end!
