Mask Appeal Challenge – Texture

Hello Everyone! I know many of us are busy, busy, busy with Christmas preparations as the big day draws near. This month, I chose a really versatile mask along with a paper that can also provide a bit of texture to your page. Use these items however you would like. You can even incorporate them into one of your December Daily pages (thank you Carol for that idea)  Kelly and I prepared a couple of pages to inspire your creativity. Katie has provided a wonderful freebie and you can download it here

Kelly (mugsbigsis) used the paper as her background and clipped the mask to her photo that was on top of one of the papers from the Sparkly Christmas paper pack. The background paper serves as the foundation for the other textured papers and she built them up layer by layer until you come to her wonderful photo that appears like you could just pick that ornament off the page.

Here are the items Kelly used: Katie Pertiet:Frosted Winter Solids Paper Pack, Sparkly Christmas Paper Pack, Golden Basics Paper Pack No. 01, Golden Essentials No. 04, Painted Photo Masks Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Clean Stitched Rounded Corners Red No. 01, Arlesey Scrapbooking Kit (bow).


I (jcaruth910) used the paper as an overlay to my background and changed the blending mode to multiply to add more texture to the page. My photo is also attached to the mask. Here are the items I used on my page: Katie Pertiet: Golden Essentials No. 4, Painted Lace Edgers No. 1, Painted Photo Masks No. 1, Shimmer Flakes Clusters No. 1, Frosted Winter Paint, Watery Bookshelf Flakes No. 1, Frosted Winter Solids, Golden Essentials No. 1.

    Love the example layouts!! I clicked on the freebie link and it didn’t work for me, don’t know if it’s my computer or something with the link? As always, thanks for the freebie! Katie, you make the coolest stuff!!

    Had the same issue with the freebie. The link seems to go to the Hightail home page rather than the freebie. Thanks for the help in correcting this!

    The link should be working now. Thanks for letting me know.

    Add a colon after http in the address bar. It worked for me that way.
