How did I do that ..Creating a Mask for your page by Sarah

How To Create A Masked Border For Your Scrapbook Pages

1. I cut a sheet of pattern paper from the Limited Edition Kit to 10"x10" and placed it in the center of my background paper.
Then, I used my green ink pad to ink around all four edges of the 10"x10" paper.

2. This is the masked border/frame that I was left with. I cut out the center of this background paper in order to save the pattern
for other projects since that part of the paper was going to be covered up anyway.Posted Image

3. Then, I took the same paper that I just used to ink over and cut it about 1/4" smaller on each edge, distressed and inked the
edges, then adhered it to the center of the background.

I also added some doodling to make the masking stand out just a little bit more.
