"Welcome to the first ever Urban Anthology Birthday Blog Hop! Thanks so much for joining in! Please note that this is a progressive blog hop and my blog is number 2 out of 8, so to start at the beginning, please click the here to start at the beginning.
As you may know, this blog hop is progressive. Each of the UA DT members are blogging about a page element or technique. THEN, once you've read all the blogs, combine all 8 elements to create your own layout and become eligible to win the Birthday Queen Grand Prize! So, are you ready?
The technique I want to share with you is a simple one, nothing new, but it adds LOTS of texture to your page.
**For my challenge, I'd like you to use a masking technique somewhere on your layout.**
It doesn't matter to me if you use paint, glimmer mist, other dyes, or whatever. Just somewhere on your layout, add a masked image. It's that easy, it's that simple.
Here are some examples I have for you, both of which are masked titles.
First up is one I did with the UA June kit "Puttin' on the Ritz".
Here, I used paint over alpha stickers to create the mask.
And the 2nd is with some Bella Blvd. papers.
"She's got Spirit"
And here I used Glimmer Mist (Cherry Limeade flavor) to make the mask. Then I decided to outline the letters in pen so they'd show up even better. One idea I'd like to try is to mask a title and then stitch the letters instead of outlining them. ;)
For this challenge though, you don't have to mask your title. It can a mask of anything and be on any part of your LO. So go have some creative fun with all your artsy supplies! :D
And that's element #2 of 8.
For the next element, visit Jana Eubank's blog here.
REMEMBER: When you've gathered all six elements, get creating, and don't forget to post your project in the Urban Anthology gallery by Sunday June 28th at Midnight (PST) for a chance to win the Urban Anthology Birthday Queen grand prize!
And lastly, I'd like to give away a little RAK of my own. For a chance to win a $5 GC to the Urban Anthology store, tell me this:
What is a favorite gift you've received for your birthday?
Please leave a blog comment on this post, and I'll pick a winner on Monday morning!
Happy blog hopping and creating! :D
