Hi from Joanne (aka jcaruth10)…We are having a giant thunderstorm here in Flagstaff as I write this, and it is most welcome. Katie has created some new framed photo masks lately, so I thought it would be fun to work with some of them this month. I like to use these round masks anywhere there could be a circle. Many templates have circles and they are perfect to use if you want to change things up. I did exactly that on my page below. Using a Layer Works template, I used the mask instead of a circle and then played with the blend mode and effects filters.
I created a photo-less beachy page and used the mask as sort of a background for the porthole. Clipping a paper to the mask and then adding a slight bevel and emboss layer style anchored the other items I blended in to it.
Can’t wait to see your work in the Gallery. Have fun!
