Art Every Day Month ~ day 26

Today I experimented with gesso.

I spread a thick layer of gesso over the left hand page and stamped into it.  Each time I lifted the stamp on the left I pressed it down on the righthand page.  I used the Dylusions stamp from the Further Round the Edge set.   The page on the right is ready for tomorrow.

When the gesso was dry I sprayed it with Dylusions mica ink.




When the ink was totally dry I stamped over it with black and plum Archival Ink.  Here I used the stamps from the Dylusions Around the Edge set.
And then played a bit with some lettering.
