Recently I was cutting out bunches of doily dies from pattern paper. I was using wax paper in between the die and the paper because of the fine detail in the die. It ended up that I had a scrap pile of pretty wax doilies that I just couldn't throw away! So, I decided to use them as masks for the misting I did on this layout of my sweet, darlin' daughter.
I wanted to pull out the vibrant greens and pinks in the gorgeous Splendor, Posies pattern paper.
First I layed down the doily at the top of my cardstock so that only half of it was actually on the paper. Then I sprayed it with glimmer mist.
Then I did the same to the side of my paper. After spraying it with green I removed the used doily and layed down a 'clean' one slightly over top of the masked image. This time I used pink to spray over it.
After it was dry, I cut out a large circle and banners from pattern paper and adhere them to the layout. I sewed on a few more strips and cut out some die cuts for embellishements. I also adhered a bit of trim to soften the page up just a bit.
Tip ~ When spraying on to a wax paper mask, spray straight down so that none of the glimmer mist seeps under it when you spray. And....cover your table well or use a box!
Creating masks from die cuts can give you endless designs. I hope you get to try it soon!
