It's my turn to host the Mix-Ability challenge, and this week's challenge is to use Reverse Masking on a mixed media project. Usually when we mask an image, we're covering it up to fill in areas around it. In reverse masking (also called mortise masking), we want to fill in the area inside the image, so we cover up the areas around it. There's a video on the challenge post explaining more.
Here's the card I made for my gallery sample, and if you'd like to watch me creating it, scroll down and enjoy a sped-up video from start to finish.
I used Penny Black's "Poppy Time" stamp as my focal image - the bloom is such a great size for this technique. You'll see in the video how I used regular masking and reverse masking to complete the scene.
Mixed media work uses at least 2 different kinds of art media... I used spray inks, chalk inks, watercolor and acrylic paints, and acrylic paint markers.
Here's the video - enjoy! Then come play along with us!
