- I do not own a paint brush for painting walls. I have never painted a wall in my life. Neither has DH. We ALWAYS hire someone to do it and we never attend housepainting parties. Ever. We are not rich, nor snobby, but we do know our limitations. When I need to do a touch up at home, I use a small foam brush.
- Because of #1 (see above) I used my largest Clarity stencil brush. (Three days later and it's still drying.) This was apparently not the way to go, because I hardly got any texture, even though I layered two colours (Blueberry Sky and Enchanted Evening). I'm thinking maybe I didn't brush off enough paint???
- I loved this technique, and see it as the perfect substitute for ink blending when I'm in a hurry, but the result I achieved on this card is very dull. Not at all cheerful like I was hoping it would be. :( I don't have time for a redo so it's being entered anyway as I enjoy the possibility of winning gift certificates.

Layered Dry Brushed Background
This week, over at Nichole Heady's Papertrey Ink blog, Lizzie is showing us her layered dry brushing technique. She made a beautiful card with a fabulous dry brushed background. My project did not go as planned.
