To create the circles mask - I simply laid various sized lids on my cardstock and spritzed with Shimmer Spritz in Baby's Breath, let it dry then used a paper piercer to outline the edge of my circle, then handstitched the perimeter with a backstich with cotton crochet thread. The stitching really makes the masked areas pop and add a wonderful texture. I also spritzed the paper behind the photo with Seafoam Spritz to make it appear to be more solid in color.
Papers here all by Sassafras Lass and the digi photo frame is from Rhonna Farrer's Vintage Photo Tools.
Thanks and see you soon! :)
