Heidi Swapp Papers and Scrapaholics Class

On tuesday night I attended my Scrapaholics class at the community centre near where I live.
This months kit consisted of some Heidi Swapp papers called invisibles and also the Heidi Swapp mask set , "Hearts".

I cant tell you how excited I was to get this kit , its fab. These top 3 photos are of the finished page I created at my class, although I didnt have my camera with me its only the finished results sorry and not a step by step so that you can see how we did it.

Here you can find a demo of Heidi using these masks and see just how easy they are to work with.

However you do get 2 of everything in your kit so I was able to get some photos of the 2nd one which I did last night , and had just as much fun.

You can see here that the masks come on a large adhesive sheet, and you need to peel them off and decide which you would like to use ,the positive or negative image.

A supplied guide gives you some examples of finished work.

I hope you can see , the image on the invisibles paper , ready to accept the ink.

On this page I only used the tiny heart masks in the corners of the page as I wanted the attention to be on the circular image.

Using a selection of inks and distress inks and a blending tool I coloured the paper until I got the look I wanted.

Ater adding some feathers and a couple of scrap image fans, the photo and my aunts name and some stickles glitter glue I was happy.

The photo is of my mams cousin , Amalia Augusta Kell.
Amalia used to be on the stage and didnt always dress like this........
I have alot of pictures of Amalia in costume and I think they will make a lovely set when they are all finished.

The finished page. I decided just Amalias name was all I wanted on this page. I love the colours and they way its turned out. I will be using these papers again , they are great to work with.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
