The A – Z of Artful Journaling: Brusho Part III

I didn’t think there would be a Brusho Part III just yet, but I’ve been playing around with one of the techniques listed on the product information sheet and have decided it’s definitely going to become part of my artful journaling arsenal. It’s just so pretty!



You will need:

  • Brusho
  • a small, very dry paintbrush
  • bubble wrap or other textured material
  • a water spray
  • your journal
  • a hairdryer or heat tool

First, spray your bubble wrap with enough water to make it dripping wet.



Next, using your dry brush, scatter Brusho over the wet bubble wrap. I’m using turquoise and purple.



You can spray extra water on, to get the Brusho to dissolve even more.

Press your journal page face down onto the bubble wrap and gently smooth it out. I used a variety of papers, rather than my journal, so I could test how it worked with each one.


Peel back the paper to reveal the pattern. I think it’s best to dry it with a hairdryer or heat tool as quickly as possible to reduce bleed-through.



And here’s how each of the papers turned out. Click on the images for a closer look. The way the different colours separate out and mix is simple gorgeous!

So, what do you think? Are you tempted to try this in your journal? What other textured materials would be good for this technique?

Thanks for reading! Bye for now.
