Hello,
I'm so happy to be hosting the GCD Studios Challenge this month. July happens to be one of my favorite months.:)

Let's start with the prize. This month it is the complete Independence collection.



The challenge is to use negative space to create a mask for paint or mist. You can either paint or mist in the "hole" you create, either by hand cutting or using a die cut machine. Another option is to use a shape or letters to create a mask that you paint or mist around.

Here's the layout I made. I used both techniques together.


If you'd like to see a complete tutorial of how I created this page, go here .

Here are few guidelines for the challenge
*This needs to be a newly created project that you make for this challenge.
* Winner will be selected by random.org – so everyone that participates has a fair chance to win!
* You do not have to use GCD products, but we would love you to

Good luck and have some fun with it!!

Your layout is so cute and creative. And I learned a new technique. I'd love to try. Totally out of the box for me.

Sorry it took me a few days to respond. I am out of town visiting family.

I will pick the winner, randomly, on the 30th at 10pm CST.

So, there's still plenty of time to join in the challenge!

Hi, ladies! I'd like to participate! Sorry it took me so long to post one! I used my Cricut to cut out one of my favorite shapes to use as a mask then glimmer misted all over my background paper. TFL!
