When my step-daughters were here recently we spent sometimes together making stuff in my studio with my stash of ribbons and scrap fabrics. Phoebe wanted to be a forest fairy so I helped her making somekind of bracelet with swirly ribbon strands. Bene was down with flu, so I made her a Gothic mask. I found a couple of old, full-face plastic masks that my mother got me ages ago. I knew I could make something out of them and the moment finally came. I decided to trim away the lower half of one of them full-face masks and painted it with matt black acrylic paint. Then I sew a piece of slightly ruffled ribbon on the top edges. It was a very pretty ribbon, black organza with silver beading work. I fashioned a rose from a piece of black satin ribbon and tucked a couple of long strands of the same ribbon behind it – then sew everything onto the painted mask, on the left corner. Finally I painted some subtle swirly motif around the eye holes with dark silver acrylic paint and it’s done! Bene loved it and it looked so good on her too! Too bad we didn’t take any photograph either of the mask on its own or with Bene wearing it! I plan to make another one with remaining full-face mask – when I did, I will make sure to take some photos to share with you all!
So anyway… it has inspired me to create a mask kit of my own designs for Ztampf! And here it is… the Masqueradia Print’n Cut Kit:
And thanks to Photobooth, I was able to quickly take some snapshots of me wearing them:
There are 6 shapes: each was designed to be easy enough to trim with scissors. 6 ready-to-print designs are provided; one for each shape so each member of the family would find one to suit them! The blank shape templates are also provided so you can design your very own using your own existing stash of papers and elements. You can decorate them further with actual sequins and ribbons if you want too!
