Mask It Art with Tarrah...

Hi everyone!!

It's Tarrah here with you today to share a cool project that I have been working on using some of the awesome X-Press It products including the fabulous Mask It! I created a canvas and used some different coloured mists with the Mask It.

What I love about the Mask It is that it has markings already on
 the backing sheet to cut to your desired size, in my case I cut long strips of it.

 I adhered the strips of Mask It down, and with a ruler,
 I measured the exact width of the Mask It to allow for the space in between each piece and then adhered the next and so on...I then used the mists in a few different colours to achieve this look...

I then started to embellish my newly masked canvas by using my favourite glue, the X-Press It Clear Gel Glue and the fabulous FabScraps Heritage Fleur Frame..

I cut the Fleur Frame in half and also cut the Fleur De Lis Off each end of the frame...

I adhered the Fleur Frame with the Clear Gel Glue and I adhered the
 paper doily with the X-Press It High Tack Tape 

I also adhered the photo and the printable down with the High Tack Tape also..

I used a flower and some glitter alphabets and some
FabScraps Jewel Embellishments to finish off my Mask It canvas

A bit of the close up detail....

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Mask It Canvas project today, it was super easy to use the X-Press It Mask It product to create a pretty canvas, so why don't you give it a try?

Thanks so much for joining me on the X-Press It blog today, happy creating..

FabScraps Mini Bunting

Hi everyone
Sharmaine here with a video of how to make a quick mini bunting. I’ll also show you a couple of examples how you can use it.
I used the following items, from X-Press It, for this project.

The great thing about bunting is that you can use it in lots of ways.
You can hang it, as is traditionally done, or use it on tags, cards or gift wrap (as I have done here).
I talked about, in the video, using up the scraps.
Well, I created a simple layout and used up some of the punched out leftovers.
I also used my bunting, all bunched up, as the base of my photo
Loved how this turned out and the movement it has added to my page.
I hope this inspires you to make some mini bunting and look at different ways to use it.
Have a great week
