I was really inspired by Jo Firth Young's post on the Paperartsy blog tonight for the masking challenge they have ongoing - click HERE to visit!
I didn't have the mask and stencil set Jo used but I do own a lovely dragonfly mask made by Carabelle Studios so thought I'd have a go at the technique using that.
I started by creating a blended background in my journal using Paperartsy Frescos in Midnight and Green Patina. I then flicked some copper splatters onto it as I think it looks fab against the green.
I placed the mask on and stippled Chalk paint all over. I like the effect created as it reminds me of clouds.
It seemed a shame to cover up my dragonflies so I ended up adding a small sentiment at the bottom, which is from a Prima set by Finnabair.
I was undecided whether or not to add anything else and spent a long time debating if an extra addition would ruin the page. So in the end I decided to leave it alone, I didn't want to mess it up!
