I am loving all the mists and such for designing my own backgrounds lately and I really was inspired by a few techniques that I thought that I might share. It all began with this layout. I love the Studio Calico's white Mister Huey and this title really stood out to me! This layout was created by Michelle Underwood from This Crazy Life.
So then I began to think about all of the ways and materials that you could use to create a masked background or title. Here are a few techniques and projects that inspired me!
1. From mytatteredangels.com
By the way, this site has TONS of examples and samples for masking!!! It is a must!
2. A tutorial about making your own masks from Sara at One Day at a Time
3. And I love this background enhanced with gems and pearls from scrapbook.com
