Playing with gesso and modelling paste again today. Must say…I’m having fun. My inspiration today comes from Freshly Made Sketches #118:
As with my post from yesterday, I’ll direct you to Splitcoast for Jackie Pedro’s Layered Gesso Background Tutorial for the process in creating a background like this. No sense in trying to re-invent the wheel right?
Again, I’ve started with a piece of watercolor paper, added a layer of gesso, a layer of stamping, a layer of acrylic paint, more gesso in random fashion, some gelatos and some Twinkling H20s and then modelling paste through a stencil.
The horizontal strip has been dry embossed and then the sentiment square has been stamped with the feather image and the sentiment. No embellies today.
Here’s what I used:
Paper: Gina K. pure luxury white card stock, watercolor paper, SU! Sahara Sand
Ink: Ranger Jet Black Archival, SU! Sahara Sand and Memento Espresso Truffle
Stamps: Hero Arts (feather), Technique Tuesday (sentiment), Unity Stamps (Christy Tomlinson) background
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro, Tim Holtz Bubble Wrap embossing folder, gesso, acrylic paint, modelling paste, spatula, brushes, gelatos, Twinkling H20s, dimensionals, TCW Mini Rain stencil
Back soon with more…
