Battle of the Brayer

To you this may be a very boring piece of paper with a bit of ink on it, to me this is a VICTORY! I have been trying for so long to use the brayer without getting hard lines, I have tried a massive amount of tips & tricks posted by the lovely ladies on SCS, but nothing seemed to work! I found this blog a little while ago, and the Author, Sharon, had mentioned that she had been to one of Michelle Zindorf's classes! So I left a comment on her blog, admiring her work and wishing that Michelle would come to Australia so I could learn her technique. We got to emailing each other, and Sharon gave me a few tips which improved my braying, but far from perfected it, until... she made a video! Yay! Everything everyone has been saying has finally fallen into place, because I was able to see it in action, rather than read about it! Thank you Sharon, I have a multitude of projects in mind now I can blend, blend, blend! All I need to do is find some time, does any one have any spare?
