Aloha Guys!

Today I’m sharing this journal page I made using one of the Prima stamp set that I had.  I’ve been wanting to use her for a while.  I also used Brusho crystal watercolor powder to color her hair.  I wanted the bloom it creates when, it’s sprayed wit water.  I kind of over did it I think, so at the end, it looks a little blurry to me.  I also wanted to use the vintage bags that Tupelo Designs LLC, packages their order in.  It’s a gorgeous vintage bag, which I thought it was perfect in the background.  I’ve added some Double Scoop Gelatos and blended it with my finger.  I also used some copper and gold sprays I had in my stash.  You can view the video for the complete process of this page.  It didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted it to, but I think it’s okay.  After all, I’m still learning and I had a lot of fun making this page.  I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks again.  I tried my best to put the supply list below but some supplies are missing…sorry.

Please follow me on my Social Media 🙂

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m playing with Brusho’s.  I’m pretty sure you guys are familiar with these products since they are popular right now.  These are Highly pigmented watercolor crystal similar to the Ken Oliver Color bursts.  The kind folks from Colorcraft was generous enough to send me these to play with, which is Awesome!!

These Brusho’s are manufactured in Sheffield in England, and they have been around for over 35 years.  Wow, right?  They have 32 colors available, which I think is totally Awesome!!  They come in many different sets and many different sizes.  The sizes in these containers have about 15 grams of powder, that’s almost twice the amount, that’s in the color bursts.  I love the fact that there’s tons of colors to choose from.  These can be purchased in sets as well as individuals.  So lets’s start playing 🙂

I just poked a hole on the top of these bottles and just put some washi tape for now but eventually, I’ll put thumb tacks in the holes.  The colors are very intense and vivid, and I love to watch the effect when it touches water.

These are background stamps that I embossed using some white embossing powder.  Look at the cool effect that they created.  The embossed image pretty much resisted the colors, giving this cool effect.  FullSizeRender 8FullSizeRender 6

These were created, using some stencils.  I got 2 different looks with using only 1 stencil.  I used the powders on top of the stencil to get a mono print, giving me these 2 different looks.

These are some other ones, I created.  This is basically it.  I had so much fun playing with these and I really love them.  I like these way more that the color bursts, because it comes in so many different colors.  I don’t think, one product is better than the other.  I think it’s personal preference, and it depends on what look you are trying to create.  Both products are fantastic, and I’ll definitely be playing with these a lot more.   Go ahead and check out the video up above if you want to see these crystals react with water.  It’s pretty cool.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you join me next time. Thanks again!
