Brayered Backgrounds with the new Wonderland set from the upcoming SU Holiday catalogue




This last week I held my Ombre classes and we learned several different ways to create beautiful backgrounds. This one is my personal favourite.

The misty background for this card was created with a brayer.  I used two different shades of ink (Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum) and layered the colours to create this effect.  What was really satisfying to me in the classes was that EVERYONE who attempted it came up with something that they were really happy with.  Brayering is not an exact science... so that means that it will look a little different every time you do it, but that is one reason why it is so unique and beautiful!  The subtle gradation of colour is what makes this perfect as a backdrop for these beautiful "Wonderland" pine trees.

You'll be seeing  a lot more of this set!  I have fallen in love with it and have lots more ideas swirling around in my head as to how to use it.

Stay tuned for more "Sneak Peeks" over the coming days. And if you'd like to get up and person with these products then come along to my launch! Details can be found by clicking HERE.
