Earlier this year we had a carnival come to town. Max was so excited to go seeing as it was his first. What made more 'spectacular' for him, was that we went at dusk meaning as the evening progressed it got dark & they switched all the carnival lights on. In his mind it was heavenly, so though I'd use that as inspiration for my technique challenge.
For this 'Bright Lights'
technique challenge you'll need to grab a brayer (we have a great one for sale in the store too see here: http://www.cocoadaisy.com/store/inkssen
... -1248.html) and x2 different shades of yellow ink pads.
I am going to show you how easy it is.
Load your brayer generously with your first yellow shade.
It should look like this. Now grab a piece of white cardstock.
Allow enough room at the top of the page to fit your brayer in. You are going to firmly & quickly 'bounce' your brayer in a circle on the page, rolling slightly.
Turn your paper as you work until you have a circle star-burst shape.
Load your brayer with the next yellow shade.
Press & lightly roll the brayer in a sun-burst shape as before. Placing the new yellow color in the 'gaps'. You are in essence giving your star-burst some 'life'.
The result is a cool background paper ready for scrapping. Simple right?
Here are some ideas you could try:
1) Blues & greens
2) Red & orange
3) Rainbow of colors
4) Yellow and blue that will give you green where the colors cross.
the possibilities are endless. My challenge is: Use a brayered sunburst image on a page in some manner or form.
This is my page idea after using the brayer technique.
