The Boxx Fortnightly Challenge

It's my turn to set the challenge for this fortnight over at the Boxx... so here goes!

This fortnight is all about your FAVOURITE techniques! I want you to use two of your favourite techniques and explain what they are and how you achieved it. TOO easy!

Here is my example:

No surprise that my two favourite techniques right now are using fabric and masking/misting!  lol
1.  Fabric: i've printed my photo onto calico (i love this effect) and also used calico and dyed muslin in the layering process under my pic.

2.  Masking/misting: i've used two of my favourite templates from The Crafter's Workshop - (cosmic swirl), along with 'graphite' TA Glimmermist, and (mini bricks) with versamark chalk ink. You don't have to use templates though to get a great masking effect.

The deadline for this challenge is midnight on 8th May and i'd love for you to participate.  Just head to the main forum over at The Boxx.  It would be a great learning experience for us all ..... so have fun doing what you love!

Thanks for popping by and cheers for now,
