If you are into scrapbooking and/or rubber stamping, chances are you have a brayer.
I have one. It’s still in the box. Still hasn’t been used.
I bought mine right after I started stamping (using a 40% Off Coupon, of course!). I figured it was something I should have. Unfortunately, I have yet to be inspired. So what am I supposed to do with this thing?
Using A Brayer For Backgrounds
I have one word for you: SKY!
The new Think Ink Technique for April has a tutorial for using a brayer to create a sky backround.
Why didn’t I think of this? A few shades of one color and you have a really nice building block for a great project.
The links below offer images of a blue ‘night sky’ and earthy ‘fall sky’.
I’m looking forward to opening up that box and seeing what I can come up with!
More Fun Ideas With A Brayer
I live in Brentwood, Tennessee and write about fun things to see & do there. I also enjoy using rubber stamps and scrapbooking materials to make my own cards. I use Stampin’ Up products for a lot of my handmade cards.
