Here's my layout:
The Venetian mask in the middle of the page is a photo that I cut out. The mask was actually all gold but I took the photo through glass and there was a blue/purple reflection across it somehow which I loved so I picked up these colours on my page.
Right from the start I had this vision of the gold stars radiating our from the ruffles on the mask but it was easier said than done! I painted the Dusty Attic stars gold, then mounted each one on a strand of gold wire. Underneath I layered various types of netting. The diamond-shaped netting on top didn't show up enough so I hand painted each strand gold. Sometimes I think I'm mad!
The background is made with Tinby Designs Colour Crush and a lot of paint flicking. I painted the gorgeous Dusty Attic Swirly Frame with Colour Crush then gave it a grungy, antique finish with gold and bronze Tinby Designs Metallic Melts.
The title is from a 7 Dots word sticker pack. I wanted the layout to have more meaning than just showing a picture of a mask. This title was perfect!
