Altered Art Book Masking

I created the red pages using masking works and lumiere paints, stamping and punches. The green pages I used masking tape over the entire two pages. The left hand side small pieces torn then painted over and stamping with background stamp, the right hand side I scrunched up masking tape to create textures then painted over and sponged with dye inks.
It's great to just experiment with different textures, it's amazing what you can create with just a piece of masking tape.
