Counterfeit Kit February - Post 4

I like to try and check out each of the links over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge when I participate for the month.  It is wonderful to see how each person has interpreted both the kit and their subsequent projects.  I had put a Studio Calico hexagon mask in my kit that I had just purchased and not yet used.  When I came across THIS post by Julenebydesign I knew exactly how I was going to use it.  Julene had used a chicken wire mask and painted gesso over the top.   I used my mask and stippled Jo Sonja 'warm white' in random patches and then added some sprays.  Once that way dry I built up my papers and used another photo from the holiday I have been scrapping from 2000.


I am really liking this kit but I am getting a bit bored of the colours so the change to a painty/spray layout was refreshing.  As I am only about 1/3 of the way through the photos I will keep on going.  This is THE year that I am going to get some of my older photos scrapped!

  1. I love how you used the mask. I need to use them more often, but am never quite sure how. I always think there's going to be some random line that I don't want. I have the mask you used. I'm going to try your technique. Thanks for sharing.

  2. fabulous use of your new stencil. I've got some new ones I've not used yet but with the school being off this week I guess the kids will help me dirty them up some.

    Brilliant layout

  6. super masking work - it works so well with the photo. it's always a good idea to sneak in an item or two to a kit that is beginning to wane - it will refresh the way you look at it. Great job!
