Designer’s Choice: using the mask

Hello! It’s Jennifer Larson sharing a technique I did with the mask this month. Here’s my page:

I normally use masks for ink or mist, but in this case I wanted to add glitter to go with the gold title and accents on the page. Here’s what I did:

1. I lay the mask on the page where I wanted the cascading hearts to be.

2. Using a sharp pencil, I lightly outlined the hearts through the mask, then removed the mask.

3. Using a glue pen (I used Zig 2-way glue pen), I drew some glue on the outlined hearts, a few at a time, then sprinkled glitter on top, then tapped the glitter off onto a tray.

4. I repeated step 3 until all the hearts were gold.

5. Once the glue dried, I used a toothpick to fleck off any stray glitter and sharpen the hearts’ outlines and an eraser to remove as many of the visible outlines as I could.

I hope this gives you an idea for how to use your mask this month!
