Brayered Background Technique

This was the card the ladies made at my Open House this week using the brayered technique that was spotlighted on SCS a couple of weeks ago. It was so easy and a great way to use the brayer, mine that sits around way too much. Here we used the neutral tones but you could do a winter scene with blues and purples as well. Just start by tearing some sticky note and that gives you the horizon. Then use the lightest color and brayer across the top, the next lightest color you brayer but move up just a bit, say 1/2inch. Then finish with the darkest color and then also sponge along the horizon with the darkest color. Hope you enjoy!

Very pretty! You are inspiring me to blow the dust off my brayer and play.

Heidi thanks for stopping by my site. I think I like your idea the best for chasing off the January Blues.......The Tropics!
