Cherish The Memory Merry Christmas 12 x 12 Christmas Layout

Hi all
I am back with a scrapbook page using  the  Sweet Winter Season Collection available at Cherish The Memory.


I started off by applying a stencil mask to the base of the page and then spritzed and few inks over. I then stamped a background stamp over the page randomly.

I used one of the A6 cards from the card kit to matt the photo on and then i cut up some of the other A6 cards to use as layers.

The die cut pieces are perfect for adding layers and embellishments

Never Dull Your Sparkle Art Journal With Brushos

Hi  all

I have a fabulous art journal page to share using a variety of products available from Colourcraft. 

Start off by applying white soft form paste using a stencil mask, Apply this down the centre of the page and a little over the sides.

Spritz with water and sprinkle over with Turquoise and use a paint brush to guide the colour over the page leaving a section in the middle of the page. Let the first colour dry and then apply Purple Brusho in the centre of the page, using a brush to blend the colours.

Stamp around the page with texture stamps and then apply black soft form paste in the edges of the page. 

 Cut out a heart from Lutradur and paint with white gesso. Use a heat gun to distress the Lutradur, This product melts when heat is applied and there are a lot of different effects to achieve depending on how much heat you use.

 Allow this to dry and then Cut it in half and sew it down the middle with white thread. 

Sprinkle Purple Brusho over the top. Use water to dilute the colour and then use a paper towel to remove excess ink.

Dye some white thread with Purple Brusho Powder and glue to the centre of the page so that it frames the heart 

Use a lable maker to add text to the page. You could also print the words off using a computer and ink them to match the colours.

Colourcraft Winter Wonderland Altered Birdhouse With Expand It

Hi all 

I am back up on the blog today with a very snowy altered birdhouse.

Glue the birdhouse together and then paint with gesso or cheap white acrylic paint. Unless you want  to stamp onto the surface it is easier to glue the item together and then paint it. It you paint the parts before gluing it together then the parts might not snap together correctly.

Mix white gesso with Turquoise Brusho Crystal Powder and paint over the birdhouse. Next use a crackle paint  over the top to get the cracks. I then used Pear Aztec Eco Metallic Luster as the final layer to give it an icy shimmer.

Take a palette knife and spread Expand it over the top generously . I then sprinkled on some glass glitter but anything fine and sparkly will work too. I then heated it with the heat gun and watched the snow form.

I then painted more Pearl Eco Metallic luster over the top.

The icicles are created by using a hot glue gun and squeezing the glue onto a non stick surface. It can then be peeled off and glued to the edge of the roof.

How To Create An Amazing Art Journal Page Using Brusho Powders

Hi all

I have an art journal tutorial on the blog today. I am going to teach you how to create this amazing journal using Brusho Crystal Powders.

Start off by taking a blank journal page and stamping around the corners of the page with a selection of texture stamps. Use archival ink to stop it washing away when you add your wet mediums later.

Next add a little water to a palette and add your Brusho Powders.

Apply clear Soft Form Relief Paste to the edge of the page using a stencil. once it has set you can  start painting over the Brusho ink. I  mixed Turquoise, Blue and purple.

Take some white thread and dye it using the Brusho Powder and then glue it to the page. Next take the flower stamps and stamp them out onto white card. Colour in the flowers with Brusho Powder and cut them out

Place the flowers onto the page and adhere using 3D foam to add dimension.
