I got this idea from Dina Wakely who is a well known mixed media artist and teacher. For this page I used a homemade mask.
To make a mask, look for a picture of a person (or anything else you like) from a magazine or from a printout. Then take packing tape and cover both sides of the image. Cut it out and you have a waterproof mask.
A mask is the opposite of a stencil. When using a stencil you paint or spray inside a shape while a mask is the shape itself and you spray around it. (masks are the inside part of cut out stencils). To make the mask for the page above I cut a model out of a fashion magazine,.
I got so excited with this method of making my own masks that I started making a bunch more and below are some of the people masks I created. Make sure when you choose images for this that the arms and legs are not close to the body otherwise you won't see the outlines.
