Brayered triptych


Triptych? Is that even the right word? Anyway, it's another project from my Brayering Class. Sorry it’s taking me so long to post these – it’s still a bit of a building site here with work going on in a bedroom and the bathroom.

I modified this design a little for the class-goers – I thought the squares were a bit big on my card, which didn’t leave much room around the edges to show off the lovely Baja Breeze cardstock.

We began by brayering onto Shimmery White cardstock. Sadly, you can’t see just how beautiful and shimmery this cardstock is so you’ll just have to take my word for it.  It’s shimmery on both sides, too.

By beginning brayering on the corner, we created this lovely shadow on the diagonal.

And, by a happy accident, on this cards I’d used three products which feature in the March Frenzy offer: Shimmery White cardstock, Hodgepodge Hardware® and Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper.

Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
