Layered Masking Technique Tutorial

Hello blog readers! It’s Angela hosting today and I’m sharing a layered masking technique featuring the highly versatile Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets – 4×6“. Here’s the finished project. The photo tutorial follows. Enjoy!

1. Gather a small canvas, your Adhesive Sheets and a die. Open dies with lots of negative space work best.

2. Cut the Adhesive Sheet with the die. Peel away the yellow backing in one piece (Do NOT Discard) and adhere the Adhesive Sheet to the canvas.

4. Fill the open spaces with a wet media of your choice. I used a gold embossing paste.

5. Remove the yellow backing mask and then the white sheet on the die cut adhesive. Do this when the piece is still wet.

6. Let dry. Don’t worry about the exposed adhesive, it will remain sticky. I left my project out overnight without any problems.

7. After the wet media has completely dried, cover the exposed adhesive with a dry media of your choice. I used silver leafing, but glitter or embossing powder would work equally well.

8. Embellish the canvas according to your preference. I painted a maple leaf with bright pink paint and adhered to the canvas with 3D Foam Squares – Black, Small. Here’s a close up view of the final project.
