Lots to do challenge - Mask It

These are my entries for the Lots to do Challenge this week which is Mask It.

I love working with Masks and have bought a few lately. I made this birthday card for my friend using one of the Tim Holtz masks - Flourishes, I love these at the moment. I used distress ink and used the mask over the top of the patturned paper. I was pleased with the result and so was my friend.

The 2nd example is one of the layouts from the vintage scrapbook i am working on at the moment. Again its a Tim Holtz mask this time the clocks. Again I used distress inks.
This picture is of my dad, his brother and his friend after the war.
I am very lucky to have really good photographs of my family , dating back to the 1800's and I have decided to put them in a vintage scrapbook, although there are hundreds of photographs I think it may end up being a series of albums.

I am also a member of Scrapaholics
and our next class will be using some of Heidi Swapps masks , I cant wait for that. You can see a video of Heidi doing a mask demonstration here.

Thanks for visiting my blog , have a great weekend.
