So, then masking, what is it? Putting a mask over what you don't want to change or over what you do want to change. I haven't figured it out yet...see so I am not as smart as I thought I was...God is helping me with humble...ha ha,
so I cheated! I wanted that cut up look I have been seeing in the gallery's...so I used my shapes...the crop ones, made a grungy looking shape. Then used the magic brush(I am so loving the magic brush) and highlighted it(marching ants) and copied and cut it out of the paper! ha ha that is it! it looks like I cut the picture, but I cut the paper! the picture is actually behind it, like a QP.
I got the look I wanted, then did the action on the picture (vivid action) and then it all came together with the help of an awesome kit by Charlie! Fantasy Dreams, available at SAS or Snap and Scrap!
for those who wonder....I have another CT! It is one I have had my fingers crossed on and I am still a bit in oh my gosh, what did I do...cause I went and looked at the other peoples gallery's, I mean wow, this is stuff for art museums, not scrapbooks...some amazing stuff.
I have that nagging fear of this little orange pumpkin I was so proud of in 8th grade. I made it in pottery class, and was so proud of it, I mixed the glazes and got a cool looking brown with a bit of an orange look to it and a smart looking green leaf on the stem...I loved this little pumpkin, so I entered it into the VIC expo( a competition for public school art). My whole family went to the fairgrounds to see my first public display of art...the place was HUGE, and the talent...oh my GAWD...there were bust of David and Michelangelo's statues...my little pumpkin, looked so pathetic...I just wanted to put it in a bag and slink away....my family of course ranted and raved about my pumpkin....
But I am gonna put my fears away...and learn from these ladies...I love scrapping, it is fun and a great hobby for me...and they are all kind...so I will tell you...
I have been invited to CT for Doris Castle! I just found out this evening, and just looking at her beautiful designs, I can't wait to begin!
