Dream Big Journal Page for Artified

Hello.  Finally I have the 'Brusho' tutorial to show you :)  I Absolutely love this technique and its different every time.  The hardest bit is waiting for the glossy accents to fully dry... LOL

You will need some glossy accents and watercolour paper to start with.

Using the 'Glossy Accents' like a pen draw random squiggles all over the page.  I know this next part is hard, but you must leave this to fully dry. I did mine just before I went to bed and they were ready for me to play with the next morning.  Do a few pages because you will want to play with more than one ;)
 
 Next, start sprinkling the 'Brusho' powders on the page.  These are highly concentrated so you only need the tiniest bit.  If you can see big piles of powder, then you have too much.  Once you have sprinkled the powders over the page, liberally spritz with water.  The colours will intermingle and make new colours and the glossy accents will act like a 'dam' and keep some of the colours separate.  Let this dry thoroughly aswell.
 Once dry it will look something like this...

 
Now its time to highlight the raised 'Glossy Accents'.  You can use Inca Gold, Rub N Buff or something similar.

 I used 'Archival Ink' in Black to darken the edges and added some splashes of white 'FW Artists Ink.
Background complete, now for the embellishments.

 
Using my new favorite 'Text Stamp' and black 'Archival ink' I stamped some white chipboard circles.

 
I used 'Gelatos' to add some shading to my circles, and then went around the edges with black 'Archival Ink'











 I coloured the Whichcraft 'Dream Big' title with 'Black Soot Distress Paint'


 
 I attached the circles and layered the title on top of some gauze.  

You can find all the products HERE.
 

Thanks for stopping by :)

  1. Fabulous Kerry. I have now made 4 pages with Glossy Accents just waiting to have the Brusho's added once the Glossy Accents dries. Your page looks really great.

  2. Can you dry Glossy Accents with a heat gun?

    2. Yes you can, as long as the heat isn't concentrated on one spot for too long. I have part dried it then let it air dry properly to allow for the glossy accents to set firmly. Also if you are doing the same method as Kerry and you heat dry the Brusho's the Brusho's will fade drastically.

    3. I wouldn't dry the Glossy Accents with a heat tool, as it could crack the Glossy Accents, but you could try it on a small piece of paper with the Glossy Accents and see what happens. I agree with Anne above that your Brusho's will fade with the heat. What I would suggest is to dribble the G.A over several pieces of paper, leave it over night, and then you don't have to wait. I know it 's hard to W.A.I.T. for something but sometimes you just have to. I understand your impatience.

    2. Elisheve, since you live in America then try EBay. It definitely comes from England.
