How to Build an Intricate Page Mask in 30 Seconds

Rarely I get the perfect photo. You know what I mean, catchlights in the eyes. The peep is looking straight at the camera. It’s actually in focus! And that’s the time I KNOW I’ve got to highlight the hell of said photo in my scrapbook album.

Usually by way of an intricate photo mask — custom built!

And in today’s Q&A Wednesday video, I’mma show you how to build those fabulous, intricate page masks. And the entire process can only take 30 seconds! Of course, it took me five minutes to explain.

But when I’m building a page, I can create a photo mask in under a minute. As long as I have the proper supplies on hand.

In today’s video, you’ll learn:

  • The only digi-supply you need to build a multitude of custom photo masks.
  • Why photo masks don’t depend on color, shapes or placement.
  • And you’ll hopefully catch how I duplicate and flip my photo to fill the frame of a custom photo mask.

Onwards to the video!
