Brayered Pocket Silhouettes
Brayering is something we all seem to shy away from even though the effect is quite stunning and easily achieved once you take the plunge. I've only recently been introduced to brayering and although I don't do it often, when I do I'm always pleased with the outcome. These little 4"x4" easel cards are so adorable and having made them in monochromatic shades it just goes to show, you don't need lots of different colours when it comes to brayering. The brayer I used is one that Stampin'Up! sells (the best of course) the Speedball roller. If you've ever seen the Queen of brayering, Barbara Gray on the well known craft shopping channel it's the same size and make as she uses and the Stampin'Up! one is a fraction of the price too - £8.95...bargain! I shall be demoing brayering at a workshop in the next few weeks and if you'd like to see how I made these I'm more than happy to come and show you how it's achieved with a home workshop - I don't bite honest. So it's the last day of Sale-a-bration today, I hope you've all managed to get yourself one or all of the fabulous FREE sets that have been on offer over the last 2 months. It's a shame we can't have FREE ones all the time but then again if you host a home workshop you can! If you fancy some freebies and you're debating whether to have a party, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will happily 'talk' you through what happens and what you can earn. There's no pressure to have one and if you'd prefer to have a little taster, I have classes and Open House events planned that you'd be more than welcome to attend. I'll be back tomorrow with the winner of my Flight of the Butterfly Card Tin Kit which you still have time to enter here. Good luck and see you tomorrow!
