Distressed gesso backgrounds
Saturday's Workout introduced me to a new technique today, creating distressed gesso backgrounds. There is an excellent tutorial here.
I created a card for a trendy teenager whose 18th birthday is approaching. Orange card was sponged with gesso and dried, then various ink pads were applied, followed by some more gesso. The stamps are by Artistic Stamper, Artifacts and Stampington. Metal key by Maya Road and felt by Fancy Pants. Background paper & letters from Colorbok.
I enjoyed the technique so much I made several different backgrounds. More to come.
