Masking with Stickers from My Stash

Time for  my monthly destashing post!  This month I focused on using up old stickers.  I made a scrapbook page inspired by the color prompt for week four of the Summer of Color

Supplies: cardstock from Neenah Paper; enamel dots, alphabet stickers & patterned paper from October Afternoon; washi tape from Scotch/3M; die cut circles from Graphic 45; Candi dots from Craftwork; laser cut banners from Scrapmatts; square stickers from Bo Bunny; paint from Ranger; black ink from Hero Arts; metallic ink from Tsukineko; household mechanical pencil & bubble wrap; button, ribbon, & label holders from my stash.

I used some very old Bo Bunny stickers from my stash to mask off a checker board pattern.

I went over the masked areas with bisque paint, then removed the stickers.  After the paint dried, I stamped over the checker board pattern with bubble wrap, tore the edges of the cardstock, and built my layout.

From start to finish, this layout was fun to make.  I hope that you enjoyed seeing it.  By the way, please let me know if you have any chess tips for me--my son beats me every time!  :)

Hi Denise! Your layout is amazing. I just love how you masked the stickers to make your checker board effect! Thanks for showing us all how you did it! Hope all is well with you!

Gorgeous page, Denise! you have interesting finds on the solution of the problem!
I, unfortunately, have not learned to play chess ... but I think it is quite natural that the son already plays with you (you win).
Великолепная страница, Дениз! у тебя интересные находки по решению задачи!
Я, к сожалению, так и не научилась играть в шахматы..., но мне кажется, это вполне естественно, что сын уже обыгрывает тебя (выигрывает у тебя).
