Full size Masquerade mask

I had some of these full size, ready to embellish masquerade masks for sometime just waiting for some inspiration to make them. What better time to dig them out and give it a whirl while I was making the mini masks for a swap

AAJ Valentine Card Swap

Ugh! I hate when I do that! I accidentally deleted this entry when I was posting my recent Alpha Stamp Group swap. So I apologise that I am re-posting this entry. But as you can see (if you haven't seen my previous post on this subject)
my submission to the Altered Art Junkies group Valentine Card swap. These have been mailed to each participant (19 players, excluding myself). I made these "cards" from tri-folded white Lunch sized paper bags and decorated each in a Valentine theme. Each one is different , no two alike. So Happy Valentines day !

AS Masquerade Mask Swap

In honor of "Fat Tuesday" comming up, Alpha Stamps yahoo group, is hosting a masquerade mask swap. The templates for these masks were supplied and were required to use, although you could choose which of the four templates you used. (I only used two of the templates) Each mask is small enough to fit on a ATC card, but for this swap, the masks would stand on its own. You could choose your embellishments/paper, but one item you used (beside the mask template) had to be from Alpha Stamps. In turn, I will receive three masks created by a different artist. I love these swaps as I challenge myself and get inspiration from other artist as well. It is just one way I flex my artistic side.
