Monday Kite Tails

Happy Monday!

Did you have a great weekend.  We did here!  We didn't get the much needed rain but it did cool off a bit.  Thursday was our wedding anniversary.  We really didn't do anything but Friday my mom watched the kids and we went to the Fraze, an outdoor concert area, and we saw Ambrosia.  Remember for those of you that were around in the 70's the pop music- How much I feel, Your the only woman and Your the Biggest part of me!  I just loved roller skating to them!  Well we went out to eat and then went to the concert.  It was so much fun!  Ambrosia was awesome!  Loved it.  Then on Saturday and Sunday  we just hung out at home and relaxed and played with the kids!

Last week I was up over at Kite Tails Designs.  I had a tutorial on misting and masking.

Have you every tried making a mask using your Silhouette?  Well, it is really fun and very easy!  For my layout I used the Kite Tails Luck O' collection and I wanted a mask that had a sort of Celtic feel.  I found a Celtic Knot design and cut that out to a 12x12 size.  Here is a close up. (Sorry about the shadow)
I then placed this mask on my white cardstock in a box and sprayed my mist.
I let that dry and then made my layout.  

I wanted the mist darker in the top right and lower left .  I really had a fun time making my own mask!  Try it some time.  I think you will really love it!

Supplies
cardstock- bazzill
Everything else is Kite Tails Designs- Luck O'
mist- Mister Huey by Studio Calico

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project.  Also you are going to want to be sure to check back here later in the week because I am going to be having a blog celebration with my 500th post!  I am so excited.  I will give a hint- Flair! My new favorite embellie!!! You are not going to want to miss a minute!

Have a wonderful and crafty day!

The masking looks awesome, Mary Pat! It works to carry your eye through the layout so nicely. Maybe you could give me some misting lessons. I am pretty clueless when it comes to this technique. :)

Kathy said...

Very pretty! This has been on my mind to do for months now...you've given me the needed push to try it for myself. I love the celtic knot!

Tammy said...

Great layout! That green misted background is really nice. I don't have a cameo so can't do a full 12x12 but I have done this misting over with doilies I've cut on the Silhouette. It's a great way to add some layering to the background. :)

That is great! :) I "accidently" learned about making masks ... I was trying to mist my die cut, but the paper underneath ended up looking a lot better! LOL

I have several cut files set aside just for masking and have yet to cut them. Gotta take some scrap time off for scrap prep work...cutting files, and sorting files into folders. Great idea and thanks for sharing.
