June's 'get messy' challenge

Firstly, this was quite a stretch for me to say the least, challenge, yes...I cracked open my jar of Gesso, that I've had for a very long time but haven't used until today!

I'm so glad that Carmen hosted this 'get messy' challenge over at Scrapbook Challenges

Here's my layout:

I've smeared the gesso on the patterned paper and then added some more and scrapped a grooved tool through it...left it to dry for an hour as I had some thick splotches.

You can just barely see the shimmer in this frame which was hand cut from a sheet of patterned paper.

Don't you just love seeing the texture and dimension that this gesso adds to this layout ?

You can also see the faint bit of spritz that I've added with a smoosh had some shimmer to it as well.

Here's the sheets that I've hand cut to create some embellishments to go with this paper collection from SEI...

So glad you've popped in today, I hope you try to mix things up a bit with paint/gesso/inks and 'get messy' !!!
