Brea Reese Glitter Ink Art Journal
Handmade by ME 🙂
Today I am sharing my handmade art journal I created with Brea Reese Glitter Inks.
Here’s what you need to make one of your own.
- Brea Reese Glitter Inks in the following colors: Crimson, Orange, Cadmium Yellow, Lake Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalo Green and Violet
- 100% 140 lb. Cotton watercolor paper (cover) – 1 sheet
- 98 lb. Mixed Media paper – 4 sheets
- Paper Trimmer
- Stapler & staples
- Bone Folder
- Spritzer Bottle filled with water
- White Paint Pen
Firstly, you need to trim your paper to the desired size and used your bone folder to fold the inner pages. Second, make circles on your cover starting in the center and work your way out. Or choose any design you want. Look at all that color!
Next you will spritz your paper with water and watch the magic happen! Sorry I didn’t get a photo of that part 🙁 Don’t you love how vibrant and how well the colors of the Brea Reese Glitter Inks are?
Let dry and then assemble your book. I added two staples approximately one inch from each end of the spine.
Spritz with water and dab with a napkin to lift some of the color. You can also lay a stencil over it, spritz and left color as well. It’s yours… do what you want!
I added a quote and some doodling to finish it off. The glittery art journal is now ready to use or give as a handcrafted gift!
Check out all that glittery goodness! I absolutely LOVE how sparkly Brea Reese Glitter Inks are! I really enjoy using Brea Reese products to create my art! You can find more info on Brea Reese products below.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today and until next time…go make something awesome!
