How did I do that ..Dusty Attic mask using mist by Sarah

I love to use masks and mists on my layouts, but I don't always want them to be the center of the layout or to overwhelm the photos.
Here's how I use embellishments as a mask to create subtle details on my layouts.

1. I used the MDF chicken wire embellishment as a mask on my background just by simply lying the chicken wire embellishment
onto the page then using a mist to spritz over top of the chicken wire.

2. I also did the same thing at the bottom of my page. I used a mist that was similar in color to the background paper in order to keep
the detail subtle so that it didn't take the focus away from my photos.

Here's my final layout. The great thing about using an embellishment as a mask, is that you can still use the embellishment on another
project once your finished!

Sarah, this layout is fantastic. I am a huge fan of masking... and I actually have some chicken wire that I love using myself! It's nice to use things that aren't generally scrap supplies to create our pages.
