I don’t mist on my pages. In fact, I sold most of my mists last summer. I am not tidy by nature, but I have learned that I must keep tidy and keep order in my life in order for my brain to not become overwhelmed and shut down. I’ve learned that I am much more successful in life when I keep order. Part of that is that I don’t crafty messy. I never have enjoyed it, however as I’ve learned the importance of my brain function and tidiness, I have even less desire to be a messy crafter.
Last week, I was experimenting with my Silhouette and discovered I could cut my own masks. Wait, why would I need a mask. I detest misting. The lack of control is too stressful to me. But, there are some applications in which misting might be okay. Small items that are easier to control, may work for me. So I thought I’d try these newly cut masks to make some cards.
Well, in the very small format of cards, I can *almost* tolerate the mess on my hands and lack of predictability. Almost.
To Cut Masks:
Use sheet of transparency paper for laser printer/copiers. This box is from 3M, I believe I bought it on Amazon a couple years ago, however, they are available at most office supply stores, often in 10 packs as well.
Set machine to Magnet Paper (slowest speed, may need double cut, mine did not). Blade depth was 6, I believe.
