yay my first challenge for the month.
I did a Stuck sketch
I got a gorgeous kit in the post yesterday from scrapbooking from scratch -lots of yummy Authentique papers. Couldn't wait to get stuck (haha excuse the cheap pun) into!
I used a technique with gesso and paint that i saw by Dyan Reaveley - gosh what a talented lady she is!
It didn't work out exactly how i wanted probably because i didn't have the right colour mist, so i tried inks guess what wasn't happy with that either! So i tried watering some paint in spray bottle, still no good!!!! Finally i settled on straight paint and mist over the top. Not too bad but i've already started another layout just waiting for gesso to dry and i'm going to try the technique again.
I'm sure you've all heard this quote/poem before. It usually does the rounds of email fairly regularly
but i still like it!
thanks for visiting, off to see if the gesso is dry ;)
