MASKerade !!



Today's post is for Inspiration Avenue's Blog party(which hasn't come on line yet so I will have to re-link later)
They are celebrating reaching 500 followers, so being a prodigal follower I thought I'd better give them a good plug :D
They are partying all week, so there will be lots of inspiration to encourage you to join in(they have even given us some free digi stuff to work with)

Inspired by these(and Butterfly Effects theme for next week Masks) I have made a party mask :D, using a packet of old left over christmas masks(50p!!!)

I recovered the mask template with the Inchie background paper freebie(new printer software, forgot to set size and ended up with 3 inch squares instead of 1 inch, doh!)
Then overlaid some Mono Women from June at Dezinaworld(printed onto vellum )

Added a few feathers, and the butterfly cut from the same inchies background sheet......
and VOILĂ€!!!!
Beautifully modelled by Mabel

  16. I love your mask - and I have to compliment your choice of model, she(?) really shows the mask at its best vantage.

    I love the collage and embellishments. Such a cool interpretation of the them this week.
