How To Add Vibrant Colour To Scrapbook Page by Katie

                                                                           Hi all

I have a mixed media layout to share along with a few ideas on how to use the Brusho Crystal Powders to add bright colours to your scrapbook pages.

I took  a photograph and cropped it to size before mounting it onto patterned paper. Next i  marked out  where the photo was going to be placed and then i added gesso around it with a palette knife. Once dry i spritzed the whole thing with water and sprinkled over OST Blue and Turquoise Brusho powders.

I then added a few stencils using modelling paste and added more Brusho powder over the top. Next i cut up pieces of cheese cloth and sprinkled Turquoise and Sea Green Brusho powder over the top and added water to activate the dye. I  Cut up some strips off patterned paper and add gesso to them before adding Brusho powder and then texture stamps onto the layers. I  positioned them onto the layout and once i was happy with the arrangement i glued them down. I then added the photo and glued the dyed cheese cloth around it like a textured frame.

Next i took some white hessian and dyed it blue using OST Blue Brusho powder. I just sprinkled on the powder and then painted water over it to get a more faded look. I cut up the hessian into pieces and glued it around my layout.

I added texture stamps around the layout and then glued sea green seed beads  over the cheese cloth. I decorated around the layout with mini shells and starfish. I painted the wooden embellishments with gesso and then painted on  the brusho powder once it had dried. Brushos can be mixed with a little water and used as a watercolour paint.

Thank you for visiting
