You can place all your masks on one layer. Just create your mask in it's final position. Twirl open the "Mask 1" and set a keyframe from "Mask Path". Now move the Current Time Indicator(CTI) to where you want your mask animation to start and move the "Mask 1" to it's starting location. AE should automatically add a starting keyframe for your animation. Repeat for all the other masks.
