The Campus is the perfect place to learn more about photo editing, various techniques, or PSP in general.
This challenge will give you an opportunity to practice some of those techniques or use some tools.
This month’s Tut/Tech Challenge is to use Masks in a project. There is a blog post HERE that explains how to use Masks in PSP. If you find some masks online, share the link with other members.
What will you do? Inspire us!October 30, 2017 at 8:23 pm #15608
Cassel, “Thank You” for the inspiration for my created mask that I have made for this challenge. I enjoyed the Brush Variance Master Classes and when you showed this brush effect with the dot brush you used… well I simply loved the effect. So as I enjoy making masks from scratch.. . I set to work … created a dot brush and made the mask below. the image I have used to illustrate it, may not be the best , however, I thought it looked not to bad to show for this challenge. I made up a page to show the mask and 2 effects I did with it. the bottom image is one layer and the top I duplicated the layer- merged down and then added a very, very small amount of bevel. Then I also made up a little card to show how it can look on a project.

Those masks are lovely! Dawn, you are really creative and I love to see how you combine all those tips and techniques into your own projects. It is very inspiring!October 31, 2017 at 6:38 am #15611
Hi Dawn, your layout, and mask are so beautiful! The birthday card is so elegant and I love these rounded Corner Punches Brushes… I don’t have those yet. It is really inspiring seeing the layouts posted here. Great job!October 31, 2017 at 8:23 am #15625
Hello Cassel and Cristina, “Thank You” to you both for your kind comments on my project.

April your layout and suggested card are really lovely. Masks are so versatile I use them all the time, and there are lots available for free on the internet – I haven’t done much with making my own yet, I always seem to need one in a hurry and don’t have time to make my own!
This is a card I did for my Brother-in-law. The window on the front was cut-out after I printed it to show the picture on the inside. The elements and the mask all come from a Studio Manu set called Grandma’s Reading Room, and I did the calendar with Keith’s birthday marked on it.November 2, 2017 at 9:04 am #15636Sue ThomasParticipant
I’ve been home for a month, to the land of song (Wales). I made this last night, as I always make a calendar month to post on my facebook page using my own pics. Here I used the punched out brushes, which I absolutely adore using in my projects and the calendar script. Made my own mask, and textured plain papers. The first snow fell on the 1st Nov, what a welcome back to Saskatchewan I got. Oh the joys of a Canadian winter.November 3, 2017 at 10:17 am #15640
Marlene and Sue, lovely layouts and masks!… Sue, welcome back. 🙂
This is my contribution to this challenge. The papers are from Di Hiller‘s WinterFun Freebie.
I am trying to make my own masks but not there yet. So, yesterday I found the mask #1 on the internet (Pinterest) and I think it is so cute and different. I like it has a word… I have to try that too.
It is a freebie from Palvinka. http://palvinka.blogspot.de/2014/11/new-snowy-holidays-bundle-with-fwp.html
The other mask is a freebie from Weescotslass. http://weescotslasscreations.blogspot.de/

Marlene thanks for the compliment on my mask and card. I enjoy spending some time every now and then making them. You card looks great and the cut out effect after printing to see the masked pic inside adds interest to cards… I also do this from time to time. I am sure your brother-in-law would have enjoyed receiving it.
Sue, your project looks really nice…. you have created lovely masks and papers.
Cristina, your page is lovely. the top mask you have used is nice.. I have done one with a word attached but not for ages. I must try that effect in masks again. the 2 bottom ones are very nice also. Your photos look great in the them. I hope you have success in making them yourself as I am sure once you achieve one or two you will really enjoy the process… however it is also great we can find nice free masks from other talented people to use in our projects….. have you tried Cassel’s MaskMaker Script.? I have used it and have had nice result… however I still enjoy making them from scratch as well.
best wishes to you all,

Hi Dawn, thanks for commenting on my page. 🙂 I think that adding a word to a mask can make the layout look very interesting… It was the first time I saw a mask like this.
I didn’t get yet Cassel’s MaskMaker Script, and I am sure it is great like all the others script she creates. She is really a pro!
I have quite a few freebies and tutorials that I found years ago on the internet but only recently I decided to try… but taking my time with it 😀
