Default TLC235 Painted Grid {8/24/09}

Hi challenge lovers! Today you're going to give your brayers a fun workout and create some great background papers. The technique that I'm sharing with you today was first introduced to me by Pat Huntoon and her awesome Technique Junkies Newsletter about six months ago and when I first saw it, I knew at once that I'd want to share it with you, so let's get started.

The list of supplies that you will need for this technique are:
Rubber brayer
Wax paper or a non-stick craft sheet to protect your work surface
Either drywall tape or magic mesh (I used drywall tape because I didn't have any magic mesh, and drywall tape is easy to find at just about any hardware store...it comes in a big roll and is adhesive backed.)
Cardstock
Either Gesso or any acrylic paint

1) wrap the drywall tape or magic mesh around your brayer. The width won't be large enough to cover the brayer, so you will need to cut another piece to adhere to the brayer, just make sure you line up the edges with your first piece of mess. Don't overlap the edges and trim off any excess from both ends of your brayer



2) Spread a thin layer gesso or acrylic paint onto your wax paper and roll your brayer into the paint, covering all sides. If you get too much paint or gesso on your brayer, just roll it off so that you don't apply too much onto your cardstock.

3) Using gentle pressure, roll your painted brayer over the cardstock laying down your paint. Roll the grid over all parts of the cardstock, re-ink your brayer as needed.

4) After amble drying time, you're ready to either stamp onto your textured cardstock, or use as is.

This technique has endless possibilities for backgrounds on cards, to enhance patterned paper, patterns for punched embellishments, and for fun elements on scrapbook pages. I can't wait to see what creative ideas you come up with today.

To see the card I created using this technique, CLICK HERE

To view all the projects in the TLC235 gallery, CLICK HERE.

And, as always, be sure to enter in the keyword, TLC235 (no spaces) when your upload your project.

This looks very cool, but I am confused! In your sample, did you stamp the swirls bg and color the hearts BEFORE you brayered the grid onto the paper?

No I first applied my grid - let it dry, and then stamped on top. You COULD stamp first if you wanted your image hidden a bit by the grid (the paint or gesso on your brayer will cover what is beneath it)...let your mojo run wild.

What a great idea. I just came across my craft roll of drywall mesh. Going to try this technique today.

Just on another note for those of you thinking you might not want to buy a big roll of drywall tape just for this technique. Have no fear...I have used this stuff for many different techniques...one of which is to paint the drywall tape and use it like magic mesh on a card. I'm sure I've probably used it for other things as well, but it's early and I need more coffee to remember...lol

Love the way your sample looks. Time to take a break in the housework and have a go at this - when I find my Magic Mesh.

If you don't have a brayer, you could cover an acrylic block with the mesh then add paint and stamp. If you have a block big enough, you could stamp your whole piece of cardstock at one time.

Hmmm, don't know if I have any of that stuff. I am not good with a brayer in the first place let alone added paint to it and tape. We will see, looks interesting though. Who would of ever thought of household items would create such great cards.

Do we need to use gesso or paints?

Could we use craft inks or just regular inks over a plain brayered glossy cardstock or maybe even versamark. Just some thoughts...

I suppose you could, but that isn't this week's technique. Let your mojo be your guide sweetie!

I couldn't find my Magic Mesh - except for a small strip that wouldn't fit round the brayer. Used some Sinamay mesh instead, attaching it to the brayer with tape. Fun challenge, I'd definitely like to try this again when I find the proper mesh. Thanks, Lynn.

That's funny because all the "fix-it" tools in our home belonged to me when I married my hubby. He's not the fix-it kind of guy, but I was on my own for several years and had to learn how to fix stuff around the house on my own. I'm proud of my collection of power tools.

LOVIN' this technique offering, Lynn! Drywall tape! Who'd a thunk it?! Good grief, like I really need one more thing in my craft room. I JUST GOTTA get some though cuz this tech is so awesome and easy. And right away I was thinkin' there are so many things that could be done with it. Bettin' it's more affordable than magic mesh. Off to the hardware store!

Thanks Lynn for a fun challenge. Just had to try this since I had everything I needed for it. My grid turned out messy but after it was put together I thought is was okay.

Still trying to find my mesh - I've tidied my room to within an inch of its life. Bummer is that it's not that long ago since I last used it - I know there wasn't much left, but there was SOME. I'll have to check out the DIY next time I am there to see if we have that drywall mesh here - DH thinks he's seen it.
