Feeling Sketchy inspirational post : Two ways to use mask

Hello everyone !

It's time for my inspirational post for the Feeling Sketchy blog !
Some of you have maybe already seen this layout before :

I made it as an example to use masks in an layout for one of my previous workshop. I added dimensions to one unique sheet of paper by simply using a white gel pen and white chalk.

I started by tracing a square in the center of the layout with the gel pen. Then, I use the Tim holtz compass mask with chalk outside the square (I did place a piece of paper to avoid chalk overlapping the inside).
Once all the compass done, I cleaned the mask and replace it at the exact same places to complete the pattern inside the square with the gel pen. Take a closer look :

It makes the inside square pops and looks like a different paper !

For the record, the pictures were taken in an ice rink inside a cruise boat sailing in the Carribean sea.

Have fun with this fun technique ! And don't forget to take a look at our list of August winners at Feeling Sketchy !
