that go with every hop.
I am glad you have hopped over

And now on to our
With the free image, I created the above card
and you know me, I have an easy tutorial for you
to make this wonderful background paper.
Grab your freebie here with the
right mouse click and safe it to your
computer. Remember where you put it!!
So what do you need:
a page from a fashion magazine
a template (or a cut out from the fasion magazine!)
1. start with adding a little gesso
on top of the magazine paper
and DRY it with your heat gun before
2. Take a few colors of acrylic paint.
Start with the first color and cover
the paper just a little. DRY it
and add another layer of gesso. DRY it.
3. You can repeat this a few times with
as many colors as you want to use to
make an interesting page.
Don't forget to dry it in between.
4. Take your mask (or the one you cut yourself)
and lay this on top of your paper.
5. Take a pruch with gesso and cover around the masks.
6. This is how it looks when you take
of the masks.
7. Quickly clean your mask with a baby whipe
before doing anything else.
Now your paper is ready to use for the
background of your card.
Because this is a fashion hop, I added some
real sewing to the background.
First I glued the magazine paper to
a piece of scrap paper and then
I used my sewing machine. Just did
some random sewing and zig zag stitches.
If you click on the photo you can see a larger
version and a more close up to the finished paper.
Here a close up of the card
and you see I printed the image on kraft paper
and colored with color pencil.
The sentiment is also by Create with TLC and you
find it somewhere on this blog hop!

made with the same image
