Painted Mask Technique and Video



Happy Tuesday, Bloggers! Tricia here from Club Scrap!

My craft room at home is a place I love to be, and I don't get in there as much as I'd like. But last week was Spring Break, and my schedule was a little topsy turvy.

I carved out a few hours here and there to hang out in my little crafting space and had the chance to play work with the Faber-Castell PITT Big Brush pens. They're nifty because of the ink properties, coordinating colors, and big, fat nibs. Love big fat nibs. Just sayin'.

Here, I use those fabulous markers to create a background and midground, and then paint on a masking stencil included in the Spring Chorus Club Scrap kit for the foreground. This is fun and easy stuff, folks.

Sometimes it's just easier to duck into the studio with my dear pal Kay Williamson and film the process rather than write instructions. I need a break from writing instructions, thank you.

Oh, before I go . . . don't make just one of these at a time. Make a ton. Then, you'll have wonderful art orphans to use on your cards.

So, here 'ya go!

  1. Absolutely FABULOUS! Those colors are gorgeous Tricia. Great collection of cards.

    I was wondering if those pens are or will ever be available in GHM?

  3. Beautiful!! I don't have any Pitt pens, but I'm thinking I could do this technique with other markers. Or maybe gelatos. Oh, but what if I scribble the paper with watercolor pencils or crayons?
    Where is that UPS man with my kit?

    Tricia...I love this technique and can't wait to give it a try. I have a question though. I have a box of 24 big brush pens. Can you tell me the color names of the 3 pens you used? Thanks a bunch.
