Mask in and out

I know, I'm supposed to be in bed sleeping (it's past 12am), but these days I have so much to do during school time I don't have time to scrap or blog. And after school, homeworks, activities, dinner and hubby took what's left.

So before crawling into bed and sleeping like a stone, I will post this layout about a unusual ice skating place : on a boat (we were on a cruise). Not the best pictures from this trip (not me behind the camera, on the front for once), but I built this layout some times ago for a workshop about mask and different ways to use them.

 
I used a compass mask by Tim Holtz, white Colorbox ink, and ribbons with ATD and Thickers alpha stickers. You maybe can also see snowflakes stamps in the middle. I used the mask in two ways : as a mask with ink and as a template with white gel pen. Drawing a white gel pen square in the middle of the page makes the compass pop, and the center of the center looks brighter.

I have link this page to the ARTastic challenge about masks. Let's cross fingers for me to win.

Ok time to sleep before seeing dancing compasses...
