I had a loose interpretation of this prompt as I think my anchor (on the yellow paper) is really more of a stencil than a mask. Or, is a stencil a type of mask? I suppose you can say that part of the background paper is masked to create the anchor shape. In any event, I cut out an anchor, used a small sponge and dabbed away with paint. Let's call it a mask!
I did a lot of counterfeiting this month - which was really satisfying. I had so much fun using my white gel pen to create some chalkboard art. And this seemed like the perfect photo for the page.
And to add to the nautical feel, I whipped up some flags to attach to my chalkboard rope. This was definitely a step outside of my comfort zone, but I have to say...I am thrilled with the results.
Thanks for taking a peek!
