Creating a Masked Background Tutorial


       I started with my cricut and picked an image I wanted to use as a mask. I used a leftover piece of laminate to cut my image out of Next I centered my cutout image with a bit of double sided tape to where I wanted it to be


     Then I put a few dobs of gesso on top of the image in random spots and used a old card to spread the gesso over my image to create a mask


     I flicked green watercolor paint to give it a bit more color


   I repeated the process 2 more times in 2 of the corners of my background



Thanks for looking
