OCC Clean and Simple 4: Gesso resist

gesso1

On day 3 of Clean and Simple 4 Julie Ebersole showed us a gesso resist technique. I didn’t own any gesso so I was a bit stumped at how to go about that particular technique (which I really liked). Thankfully, I found some inexpensive gesso while visiting a store for painters’ accessories and now I have enough gesso to create hundreds of similar cards ūüôā

I really like the look of the three different Distress Ink colours mixed over the gesso. In fact Distress Inks are rapidly becoming my favourite inks… Who would have ever thought!

 

I decided to mount my white front panel on a black card base to play up to the black dymo label and the black splatters.

It is a bit of a mess making card like this but it is also a lot of fun!
