Hello Everybody!

Tonight, I have been finishing up the last two Dylusional Masks!  The thing I think I'm learning through making these masks is to like fussy cutting.  OK, don't go crazy on me....I said, THINK!  LOL!  However, when folks say they watch TV while doing this task, how in blue blazes do you stay on the lines?  I had one eye on the tube, one eye on the scissors and another eye on the paper...Still lopped off essential parts! :)  Three eyes is not enough!  Ahhhhhh....But I found the trick...That black marker works wonders for creating new lines like they were supposed to be there!  :)  Yep!  Magic!

So, the masks are done, now I'm onto a cool new mini I thought about in the car today!  So excited about it.  We'll see if what me head thinks, me hands can create!  Its always a toss up!  LOL!

Here are the last two masks.  One simple and the other ...well...leafy!  Let's do the simple one first....
