Hello blog visitors, Kirsten here. I hope you had a lovely weekend. It was a bank holiday today & the weather was pretty terrible here. I continue to hope for a gorgeous summer....
Last Friday was Lisa's class in Maidstone & it was all about creating backgrounds. Today's cards were made by Lisa for the second part of the class, where she showed us how to create a background using a brayer.
I've had a brayer for ages & occasionally had a play with it, without much success, so it was great to have Lisa explain & demonstrate a few techniques that we were able to use to make mountains, a sun - or moon - and a border. Speaking for myself, I need LOTS of practice & despite having one of those days, where nothing went right for me, I was quite pleased with my first attempts.
Many of you will recognise the lovely images on these cards as being from Lavinia Stamps. She used Distress inks & Adirondack inks to create these backgrounds & then overstamped the images with black Archival ink. She added detail with Glossy Accents & Distress Stickles.
I hope to be back tomorrow to show you the rest of Lisa's samples from this month's class. Until then, thank you for looking &
