MPS Challenge #3 - Think outside the box
This Challenge was harder for me at first, I am used to using almost anything in my scrapbooks. So I looked around my room and found something made for scrapbooking that I have not used yet even though it was purchased several weeks ago. What did I find you ask? Tim Holtz Mask After I saw his video on Youtube demostrating this product I wanted to try it. So I finally bought a couple of them several weeks (months) ago. I decided to use the clock on a scrap peice of paper by DCWV. Then I started to build the colors after applying the mask using Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Everything else came together after that. I found a picture of my husband's great-grandmother and created a jounal tag using Word. Then I cut the tag out using my Cricut Expression.
