Visual Journey #34

My first experiments with Brusho crystal colours.

At Ally Pally last weekend I sat at a make and take table to have a play with Brusho colours. I have used them in the past for simple watercolouring with 11 year olds but never really experimented and played for myself. In fact I had completely forgotten about them until they started becoming popular on the blogs. The colours are so vibrant, I love them.

Using pre-stamped and white embossed watercolour paper given to me and with two layers of brushos spritzed with water I was quite pleased with the effects so I've had a quick play in my visual altered journal and this time used black embossing powder and just a small range of colours that I bought to experiment with.

I prepared an A4 piece of  textured acrylic paper spritzing the brushos and then completing with a wrinkle free technique leaving some white space.The leaves are Tim's framelits stamped and die-cut.

When I saw these photos together the background colours reminded of blackberries - don't ask me why!!!!

I'm obviously still in that transition mode from summer to autumn with the greener colours behind the very autumnal leaves.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your week is going well.
