So much fun artwork today! Let’s start with Laura’s Masked Beauties – Overlapping Gatefold Album! That stunning image at right is just one page from the album!
Once again I have a mask themed project for you. I’ve created 8 different masks that are showcased on lovely ladies from the twenties which you can find on a new Vixens Collage Sheet.
And to show off the masked beauties, I’ve constructed a Art Deco style gatefold album with a bit of a twist. Because of the shape of the cover, the pages are attached at a slight angle with each page overlapping the next. Art Deco style is all about geometric shapes which I mimicked by using three different metallic Dresden borders, paper and thin line stripe tape. Because of their geometric shape, brass seashells also add to the Art Deco feel of the book.
Laura also created (another) new Butterfly Masks Collage Sheet that she uses throughout this project!
On to more artwork! Design Team Member Caroline Ouzts-Hay has created a trio of masks with the large size masks in 2 new mask sets. (Just showing 2 of her 3 creations here, but check out Caroline’s blog for lots more photos and details.)
My artwork suffers from a mild case of multiple personality disorder, so I’ve made not one mask but three.
I went to town with the liquid pearls on this one. I used Mermaid and White Opal here, but I must have one of every color. So scrumptious! To get a more even colored look I painted the chipboard diamonds & feathers before applying the liquid pearl in coordinating colors. You don’t want chipboard brown showing through.
(On the pink and black mask) the silver bit at the top is a decorative metal piece that I coated in silver gilding flakes. Just paint on some of the adhesive and then place the silver leaf down working it into all the little nooks and crannies.
Here’s a link to Caroline’s Supply List (for all 3 masks).
Next up: Kristin Batsel’s The Arches of Mardi Gras!
Did you ever just get a weird idea and decide to run with it? Here’s what happened to me when I got the March kit from Alpha Stamps. I fell in love with the color of the G45 papers and the images on the Costumes Collage Sheet. The arches seemed like the perfect place to host a costume ball, and what do you know? A slew of Mardi Gras babies decided to crash the party!
Hooray for the Masked Beauties Giveaway!
I didn’t even point out that Laura used the medium-sized set of new chipboard masks in her layered Art Deco album! So that’s the first item in this Giveaway package!
All of these items from Laura’s artwork are also in the Giveaway package:
