Learn What Happens When You Use Brushos With Aquawax

Hello crafty friends

I am back with a tutorial showing you how to use the Aquawax.

First of all i painted the page with gesso and mixed Lemon Brusho Powder with the Aquawax. I  gave it a good stir to distribute the colour and then painted it onto my blank page at random and let it set.

I applied a stencil to the page with modeling paste and let it set before spritzing with water. I then sprinkled Orange, Lemon and OST Red over the page, adding more water to spread the colour across the page.

Adding ink over the Aquawax will create a slight resist effect and will dry with a grungy texture.

Next i mixed Lime Green Brusho Powder with modeling paste and applied it randomly to the page.  Paint a section of white card with Lime Green  Brusho powder and then stamp out 6 larger hearts and 12 small hearts. Stamp a texture over the top with lime green ink and leave to dry. Next mix Lime Green Brusho with Thickener to make a glaze. 
Paint this over the top and cut out the hearts.

Glue the hearts onto the page in a flower shape and then stamp out a few small flowers onto card. Paint these in green and cutout, 
Use as flower centres.

Paint the corner of the journal with gesso and add a little lemon over the top.
Stamp out inspirational words onto tissue paper and glue to corner of page. Apply the glue onto the page first otherwise the tissue will tear.

Thank you for visiting.

    1. Thank you Rose.
      Stamping on tissue is a great way of adding letters to backgrounds without worrying about having a it partially stamp or smudge. You need to put the glue onto the project first otherwise the tissue can rip.

  5. Stunning journal page and love your step by steps and tips too
