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!

IMG_8548

Aloha Guys!

Today i’m doing a DT card for Tupelo Designs LLC and I;m going to share this Simple blending tip using the Zig Clean color real brush markers.  These markers Amazing and I only used 3 colors for these Altenew Bejeweled Butterflies and I used the marker itself to do the blending.  Because these are real brushes thats on the markers, blending it with the brush will not contaminate the markers unlike some of the felt tipped watercolor markers.  That’s what make them Unique.  Even if you have trouble watercoloring or coloring in general, you’ll find these easy to use.  These markers are highly pigmented so you don’t need much to create beautiful colors and they blend very easily.  I hope this video helps you out a little and helps you decide if you were interested in these markers.  These markers are sold in a lot of different sets as well as individually so you can customize your own color pallet.  I thank you guys so much for visiting and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks so much.  Please check out my other videos on my Youtube channel as well.  Thank you so much 🙂

Dylusions Paints Review

Dylusions

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m playing around with these New Dylusions Paints that I received as a DT Package from Tupelo Designs LLC.  They were generous enough to send me these as a DT package which I am super thankful for.  I have been eyeing these out ever since it was released at CHA.  This paint was demonstrated  at CHA by Dyan Reaveley and according to her, they were super easy to use and Anyone can use these very easily which was right up my alley since I’m not too familiar with working with paints.  As you guys know, I make a lot of cards and I use mostly translucent mediums to color my stamped images so the lines will show through so I don’t use many Opaque or Semi-opaque mediums.  Paints are a little intimidating for me, it’s something I’mnot too familiar with.  Lately though, I’ve been very intrigued with mixed media and Art journals and I have been collecting a lot of things for it but I’ve only done 1 Art journal, lol.  It is kind of scary trying something new, especially on camera.  So I was super excited about these paints since she made it look so easy to use.  The colors are so vibrant and bright so it was super fun playing with them.

First thing I did was to swatch out my colors to see if the colors change after it dries and there was no change in the vibrancy of the color.  I do these product focuses so that you guys can see how a product is hands on.  When a new product launches in the market, I have lots of questions regarding the product.  I personally want to see them used so that I can make a decision whether or not the product is for me.  That is the reason why I do these product focuses.  I did make a video using these paints in many different ways.  Some things worked and some things didn’t, lol.  Even though it may not be a perfect video, I still hope you guys enjoy them.  I have a full supply list below if you think this paint is something you want to invest in.  In my opinion, these paints were very easy to use, just as Dyan said they would be.  The paint jar is really a good size and you definitely get a lot of paint in it.  Thank you so much for visiting and Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thanks so much, Mahalo

Tupelo Deisgns LLC DT Project Using Lyra Watersoluable Crayons

IMG_8240

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m doing some coloring for Tupelo Designs LLC using this  beautiful Stampendous Build a bouquet stamp set along with Lyra Watersoluable Cryons.  This is a beautiful stamp set and it’s really fun coloring them because of their size.  These stamp sets also come with Free Stencils which is another plus!!  I’m using the watercolor crayons to watercolor because I wanted to show you that you can use this for watercoloring.

The Lyra crayon are a high quality crayon that has a very vibrant pigment so it’s easier to use.  These glide on paper like butter, it almost has the consistency of a Gelato because of it’s creaminess.  If you’ve never tried out watercolor crayons, I suggest you try them out.  They are a whole lot of fun.

I’m not making a card with this today but just sharing my coloring process for this flower.  I do have a Full tutorial on my Youtube Channel if you’d like to check them out.  All the supplies I used in this video is linked below for your convenience.  I thank you guys so much for stopping by and I’ll catch you guys next time.  Thanks

Altenew Sketchy Rose and Gelatos Tupelo Designs LLC

Rose 1

Rose 2

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a DT Card for Tupelo Designs LLC using the Altenew Sketchy Rose and Metallic Gelatos.  With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought I would make a Mother’s Day card using this Large Rose.  Really Beautiful!  I’m using the Tim Holtz watercolor paper, which I cut using the Lawn Fawn’s Large Rectangle die and stamped out the stem of the rose using the MFT’s Hybrid Black Ink with Fiskars stamp press.  I stamped out the rose 2 times and fussy cut them out so that I can layer the roses.  I’ve been really excited about using the Metallic Gelatos so I decided to see if I can watercolor with it, and I think it turned out Beautiful!!.  The picture doesn’t show the shimmer but in real life, the rose is very shimmery and beautiful.  After coloring the stem and the rose with the Gelatos, I also used the cracked pistachio and abandon coral to darken up some areas to add some depth.  I also distressed the edges of the stitch rectangle using Vintage photo distress ink pad.  I chose out one paper from the Prima Butterfly 6×6 paper pad and cut it to fit the entire front of my A2 size card.  I used Tim Holtz distress tool to make it look more shabby chic and distressed the edges with Vintage photo ink pad as well.  I layered the roses together and adhered it to the stem.  I added some pearls for the finishing touch and used Signo white gel pen to add some stitching around the Design paper.  I have a Full tutorial on how I made this card if you want to check it out.  All the supplies I used will be listed below incase you want to check it out.  I hope you like this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas. Thank you! 🙂
