All brayered out?

Hi lovely crafty people, Thank you for dropping by.
I've been playing with a brayer again, over at the Craft Barn Blog the Wishing Well is all about brayering.

I'm rubbish with the brayer. Can't keep blaming the brayer and would love some help please. 



So I had another play






I used a nestie cut out from card which is thicker than paper for the template because I wanted a soft edge to the finished circle. Torn paper for the horizon, the big and Juicy ink pads are wonderful for brayering, the colours are all there for you! I heard a rumour that Ranger have stopped making them, that makes me sad:{  Copics to colour.
Over at the Craft Barn the team have made more lovely examples, do check it out:0)  I hope that you'll give the brayer a try it may be your next best friend LOL Gay x

Hi Gay

A gorgeous creation. I love how you have used your nestie.

Fabulous colours and your little seagull is the perfect finishing touch.

I don't think me and my brayer will ever be "best friends" .. .. .. just mates! I don't give him enough attention for him to ever be more than that!! LOL!!

Have a great weekend.

Love Jules xx
