fun with maskS!

so… always people are asking me what my favorite product is… and i can tell you, that it’s impossible to pick a favorite! i love it all so much! however… i have to admit, that i am quite proud of the masks… the creative, artistic, non-conformist soul inside me really likes the masks… i love the versitility… i love that we were able to find a material that would fit the vision in a really cost-effective way. i love that there are so many possibilities…and… admittedly… i love to use spray paint. anyway… it just flat out makes me happy when people use masks… and enjoy the results… the first time someone uses a mask, and they remove it to reveal the design, there is such a thrill because it’s so easy and effective!  so yesterday morning i woke up to an email from Randi at Scrapfriends forwarding me their design teams review of my masks! it was so fun to hear these scrapbookers thoughts and insights and experiences about the masks! they ALL liked them!

heidi masks!  check out the link! i thought it was so fun to see the different ways these girls used the masks. and i felt inspired to post a layout i did with one of my first homemade, handcut prototype that liz made a long time ago. but i love this layout. i pulled an article from a skate mag that was white on black and then sprayed yellow and red paint over the top… then i took a beat up box, and some vinyl letters in different sizes and sprayed the box with the 2-tone spray paint as well… dang.. i loved it! almost as much as i love the rocket power underwear hanging out of his shorts as he’s jumping! Flamemask

there is a very real danger associated with having spray paint laying around! i have little vandals in my midst… not really sure WHO could have done this… i have some suspicions… (their names start with Q and A)…..

    I love the masks…one of my favorite products too! I work at the Urban Scrapbook and we were recently on a morning show demonstrating products and I got to demonstrate the masks! The projects I showed turned out great, I even used a mask on the front of my album. Love your products and can’t wait for more!

    I love the masks. Only I can’t find any in my neck of the woods. I have a few from Provo. The mask work great for pottery. I’m heading over to Color Me Mine to paint some pottery and my mask are tagging along.

    i love the paint on the wall, that is so cute – i just laughed out loud!!! it is so funny how they just gave themselves away!!! our mask classes at the store are very popular, the customers LOVE to see the variety of ways they can be used. i love to use textured paste when i use them. hope you’re feeling well, heidi! πŸ™‚

    LOVE the layout so much!!!! I have to admit, I had that flame mask out for a layout of Ryan and he really squawked at me for almost using it! I think I might anyway though! LOL πŸ˜‰

    LOVE the layout!!! Looks like you will have to let Quincy loose on a canvas with your masks and spray paints and hang it in her bedroom… she looks like she is turning artsy like her mum!!!!

    I’m totally interested in getting/trying some of your masks… where can I buy them? do they sell them at Archiver’s? I know they sell a lot of your products, but I don’t remember seeing the masks. …help from anyone would be great. thanks!! πŸ™‚

    No way!!! That’s one of those things you have to make yourself laugh about, or you’d never stop crying! I guess it’s a good excuse to freshen up the paint on the wall…. hmmm… maybe you could use some of those uber-kewl masks & have a little fun!!!
    Speaking of the masks, my LSS doesn’t have them yet. bummer.

    Heidi,
    I just wish I could find your stuff. I have checked all sorts of places and I have the hardest time finding the masks, the fuzzy letters, iron on letters, (I’m dying for some of those!!) and some of your foam stamps…I get so frustrated. I get sick trying to get my hands on your products. I have found some things on the ACOT, but I wish someone carried your whole line..I want it ALL…BTW–your stuff looks great!!
    Keep up the inspiration.
    Louise

    I have been known to tell the girls at my store that some amazing designer someday, such as Heidi Swapp will come out with Scrappers Spray Paint in cute little bottles……… πŸ™‚

    I absolutely LOVE the masks!! I went to a weekend crop a few weeks ago, and one of the layouts I finished was one where I had spray painted the paper pink! I used your new letter masks, and these are awesome! The layout turned out so COOL, and everyone was impressed that I had used plain, old fashioned spray paint.
    Yes, I must admit, I probably have at least 10 cans sitting out in my garage. If I get tired of something, I’ll spray paint it, and VOILA! It’s something “new” again! I love that about spray paint!
    I admit, I laughed when I saw the pics of the wonderful “art” on your outside wall! If it was me, I would have told Sydnie to RUN!!! Well, it could be a great excuse to repaint the outside wall πŸ™‚ !!

    By the way, I know your daughter’s name is Quincy. If it was my wall (& my daughter ~ Sydnie), then, I would have told her to RUN because I know I would have had a screaming fit right there, OUTSIDE for all my neighbors to see! Though, the elderly man, who lives across the street, would have just laughed ~ he’s been there, done that! HA!

    Thanks for the plug Heidi! I absolutely LOVED working with your masks for the Scrapfriends review. They were so fun and I just felt creative when I was working with them. I was also really impressed with how reasonable the cost was. Thank you for letting us work with your awesome products! I can’t wait to see what you reveal at CHA and will have to make sure I make it to your booth. πŸ™‚ Thanks again!

    This brings back memories, when I was little I got a hold of RED spray paint and painted the inside of my parents garage, including their WHITE car, the inside of the freezer and clothes dryer.
