I like to have a little notebook and some pencils with me wherever we go, if I need to jot something down, but also to do some sketching if there is a moment over. You can find another one of them in this post. The Brusho Crystals are so much fun and I used them to make this cover. You really need to see them in action, which is why I've been wanting to make a little video about them. For my cover, I used the very cool Watercolor Canvas by Fredrix. The book measures 5.5 x 6.5 in.
This is quite a quick video. When editing, I realised I was pronouncing 'Brusho' a little weird, oops, maybe it was because I was hurrying to get the recording done before Leo woke up from his nap.
The cover was white embossed with the Tiny Alphabet Background stamp by Simon Says Stamp. The embossing resisted the paint. When the paint was dry, I ironed off the embossing powder by placing the canvas between two printer papers. You need to change the top paper frequently since the powder gets stuck on it. This makes it easier to continue stamping on top of the covers.
I hope you enjoyed this project!
