Layered Brayer Technique

This is a very fun technique.  And I found it to be very simple too.  When I made my sample I had worked up a full sheet of glossy white card stock so I have some more for future use.  Making a full sheet of a design is also a technique called "One Sheet Wonder." 

To do this technique you use VersaMark with solid image stamp.  Then you emboss with clear embossing powder. You pick two or three complimentary colors.  Taking the lightest color you ink up your brayer and go over the entire piece of card stock until the color is even.  You always need to wipe the surface off with a paper towel when you are done. The embossed areas hold the beaded ink and if you don't wipe it off it will make a mess.  Next you randomly add pieces of sticky notes around the card stock.  Then you take the next lighter color and brayer it on evenly.  Wipe the card stock off when you are done.  And you can add some more sticky note pieces and then brayer on another color if you like.  It's easy to do and a lot of fun when you see the end result!

I have a few more techniques to go and this, the 4th set will be done and ready for sale.  Both physical set and on CD for teaching Technique Club Classes. 

All of the Techniques are available on CD and you can purchase them in my web store.  There has been a few glitches in the web store so if you can't access the page just check back in a little while.  The CD's are set up so you can just print out the technique, cut two sides and it's ready for your club members to decorate for their album.  They are 6" x 6" when finished.  The CD's also come with a picture of the completed one too. 

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
