And now to a beautiful Masquerade Mask by team member Lynne Erskine Forsythe. Lynne says: I CAN’;T BELIEVE IT’;S OCTOBER already…;.

where has this year gone???

Anyways…;..I decided to play along with?Canvas Corp Brands October Challenge!

First, I went to Pinterest for inspiration…;.. I searched Masquerade Mask…;.. what showed up…;..was AWESOME! Now, that I was TOTALLY INSPIRED I set our to find a?mask base at my local party store!

I painted the whole mask with gesso, when dry I applied a layer of Multi Medium Matte with my fan brush and applied a sheet of Tissue Stock ~ French Script on Ivory?I squinched it up a bit as I was laying it down.

ALL GOOD.?I had applied it thick enough to still have dimension.?When dry, I painted on a layer of?Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glam ~ Camel.

The top of the mask is vintage lace that has been painted with?Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glam ~ Camel. I just LOVE how it stiffens the fabric.

?I accented the opposite side with a vintage button and another?7gypsies Charm ~ Made also painted with?Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glam ~ Tide Pool.

Here is my mask in use…;. (my grandson thought it was pretty cool)

I attached my finished mask to a dowel as it was too heavy for the elastic cord. I hope I have inspired you to play along with this month

(Video link here.) ?Barr Hogan sent us this compelling video about a man who invented simple, easy-to-make solar light “bulbs” ?using ordinary materials housed in recycled plastic liter bottles. He has literally brought daylight indoors to poor families in the Philippines whose houses are so close together, they block the sun from entering. ?Now the?My Shelter Foundation?and other organizations have started campaigns, hoping to spread this simple d-i-y lighting throughout the world.
