For the love of gesso....


For-the-love-of-gesso

Gesso is one of my fave art supplies. Seriously. 


Here's the proof that I mean business when it comes to gesso *winks*.... and Liquitex is currently my fave brand. :) 


I use the regular gesso to prep my journal pages and use the super heavy gesso with a stencil to add texture to my pages.


Gesso is basically plaster of Paris. It dries hard and a little stiff making it a great primer for thin pages as it makes them stronger. 


My art journal pages were done with a paint brush, acrylic paints, gesso and my fingers. :)

I have always wanted to have a flower on my face! This is just awesome! Those blue eyes are piercing...so maybe a bit of the girl's soul is shining through and she is asking if you can see it? Sorry, a bit over the top this morning maybe as I have my coffee!
