Hello. This is Jana with the August Mask Appeal Challenge. One of the many things that I love about using an artistic mask is that is instantly softens the edges of my photos or digital paper. Soft edges can give the page such a timeless feel.
Katie has a great freebie pack for you. The freebie pack will be available until September 3rd.
My friends Linda (earlofoxford) and Janet (JALong) were eager to jump right in and help me with this challenge. I adore the pages that they made.
Linda showcased this sweet photo of her granddaughter on her page. Make sure you look closely at how she used the mask multiple times and her fabulous title work. This is such a GORGEOUS page.

Janet once again brought her signature style of color and fun to this challenge. I can’t get enough of her pages and this is no exception. Love how she used the mask as the background to these beautiful photos and great design.

I used the mask to soften the edges of a favorite photo of my daughter. I enjoy using masks for a lot of different reasons but certainly one of them is that I can create a page so quickly and that was certainly the case with this page.
