Smeared & Smudged Junk Funk - Mask

Yup, it is all about the mask's this month and here is another project for the Junk Funk Challenge at the Smeared and Smudged Forum by Smeared Ink.

Challenge was to use a cereal box in some way.  I also had a challenge for myself to use a "Mask" in all of my projects sumitted to this month's Forum.

I do need to give a big head nod to a wonderful talented lady, Helen.  Check out her blog, Croms' Cubby Hole.  You will not be disappointed.  Her so awesome project inspired mine.  I will post Helen's project at the end of my post, because you might not come back to mine!

My other inspiration was that so great 1985 movie Mask.  I love this movie.  How good looking is Sam Elliott in this?? 

Why I'm Right


My Lovin' Deets
Saying on front of bench is from Dylusional called Say It How It Is.  I stamped in Marina Mist and used the Early Espresso marker around edges. 
Barb Wire frame is from my Smeared Ink Rubber Club stamp set Urban Decay, stamped in Early Espresso.
Saying on back is from a set called Yippee-Skippee! by Stampin' Up!

I printed out an image I found on Google for the movie Mask.  The 80's remind me of mass advertising and graffiti for some reason.  So I made my little bench following those guidelines.

In Helen's post she took a picture of the bits and pieces of her bench before she assembled it.  It was a kit pre-cut made from wood.  I printed out her picture and using Grid Paper, drew the pieces.  It took several adjustments, but I finally got my pattern.  I scanned my pattern, cut out pieces, traced pieces onto my box, cut out pieces, and assembled.
Bench was spritzed with Log Cabin Smooch Spritz (retired from SU!) and used Burnt Umber Acrylic Paint on sides and back.

I adhered pictures and sayings.

To make small dots on front, and graffiti on sides, I used a Silver Marker.
