Well, for the first time in 78 Cinema Challenges, I missed last week’s Cinema Challenge. Bummer. It was a busy week here, my DD is starting to head into Dance Recital time, DH is recoperating from Hip Surgery, my youngest was involved with Collections Fairs & extra school stuff, Malcolm really wasn’t any extra bother, no more than usual It is still a busy time. Like many others, I’ve heard of too, we are struggling with colds … hello it’s May? What is THAT?
Anyhoo, I really wanted to give this week’s Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #78, Much Ado About Nothing, a go! In the movie/play there is a part with a Masquerade Type Ball & everyone has these Venetian Type Masks. Here’s my go with it:
The mask it self, I drew, but I remember seeing the idea first, probably 4 years ago on Martha Stewart. I think it was a cat mask, with ears, but I couldn’t find the link for it (could only find this mask template, still very cool) , so I redrew it, with a few embellishments. So print/cut it twice …
Okay, so convert it to an svg, cut on the Cricut Cutter (or just by hand) & you get this …
Crease along the middle fold & super sticky & sew if ya like. It does help if you make vertical cuts (notches) along the edging, like you would for sewing a curved line. I also super stickied a bamboo skewer to hold the mask.
Now, for the challenge requirement. I am ashamed to say that I haven’t a clue what Parchment Paper is (FOR Crafting that is). Is it like a Vellum? Dunno, but I do know what parchment paper is for baking, so that’s what I used.
More decorating and it’s done.
Used: Patterned Paper from K & Company called Blue Awning. The Bling is from Craft called Rhinestone Border Stickers, Stampin’ Up! Flower Punch, Parchment Paper.
Thanks for the fun!
