Brayering Stamp Camp!

Myself and Claire are holding a Brayering Stamp Camp on Sunday 20th April. The cost of the course is $60 but that includes a Kaleidscope Spectrum ink pad and a brayer* which are yours to keep at the end of the day!

If you want to see the kind of things you could be making here are some samples. Claire will show you how to make some scrap pages using brayering techniques, of course if you are a card maker you can adapt these to cards or even make a 12 x12 background and cut it up to make cards from.

Both these layouts started with a 12 x 12 sheet of Whisper White card stock, you have to agree the brayering techniques have really transformed these! If scrabooking is not your thing and you prefer to make cards them Claire will show you how you can use one transformed whisper white scrapbook page to create some truly cool cards, kust like the ones below

From this...

to this........

With myself, you will get the opportunity to use your spectrum pad and some glossy cardstock to make two cute little gift boxes, you can choose your template and stamps and I will show you how to get different effects!

I will also show you a technique called 'Brayered Skies', where by using a a few similar coloured ink pads you can make a stunning sky effect. As i am ot sure entirely what stamp sets will be in the new catalogue I have played safe and used Lovely as a Tree for this first card, I know this set will be in the new catalgue.

I have also put together these two card which are basically the same. The card on the left is totally cased from a card which was posted last year by another Australian SU! Demonstrator, Alisa Tilsner, who cased the idea from another excellent stamp artist, Michelle Zindorf. The only thing different is the colour scheme. The one on the right is different but oviously follows the exact same principles. The stamp set used here is Stem Silhouettes, this is in the current Summer Catalogue (which is still available until the end of March!). I am sooo hoping it ends up in the main catalogue as often popular sets from the minis do reappear in the main catalogue. Everyone cross their fingers!

So these cards and pages may well make you decide you would like to join our Stamp Camp, well of course you can so long as spaces haven't filled. I know there are a few left so if you live in the Hobart area, would like some new craft equipment and tuition on how to use it (go on, own up, how many of us have item in our craft kit we have forgotten, or indeed never knew, how to use it?!!) contact me to sign up!

*If you already have a brayer but would still like to come along then we can offer a discount on the course fee.
