HAAA. I still laugh out loud when I look at this photo!
During my "May Misting Month" I wanted to use masks for some of the layouts I created. By the way, this was one of the most enjoyable scrapbooking months I've had for a long time because I set a goal to do more and learn more about misting; and I did!
The Studio Calico collection I used in this layouts comes with a sheet of alphabet stickers (see them in the products below). I couldn't decide on a patterned paper to go with the floral on the right so I decided to make my own.
I used the sticky-backed cardstock that the sticker letters are attached to as my "mask" to form lettered paper. I left the stickers on the release paper--carefully removing the sticky cardstock "negative" which became my new and inexpensive "mask" for the letter-misted paper you see on the left-hand side of the page. I LOVE how it turned out and will definitely use this misting technique from now on. Because the cardstock "mask" seems to have a coating on it so it can be reused many, many more times in new and interesting ways.
I used a swath of cream paint under the words "hold hands" because the letters didn't stand out on the page when on the paper alone.
