This month's challenge at A2Z was to do something new, something that you have never done before. Coinsidently, this was one of my new years resolutions and here I thought I would have most of the year to procrastinate but apparently not.
My new is using gesso. I have seen so many talented crafters using this medium and decided that that would be my something new. But while I was creating, I actually did two new things because not only did I used gesso (which I made myself), I also blended two distress inks to colour my texture paste (which I also made).
Here is my entry:
To start I spread gesso in multiple directions and then added paper and then more gesso. I then used my brick A2Z chipboard and added home-made texture paste and then blended distress ink (tattered rose & picked raspberry). I then used a droplet to drop tattered angels (cupid) and perfect pearls mist (pink gumball) around the page.
papers: DCWV (luxe & glitter stacks)
fancy pants design title
k&company (b&w flora and fauna)
making memories (just chillin' girl)
webster's pages (polka dots)
kaisercraft (porcelain rose)
distress stain (picked raspberry)
american crafts twine
studio 112 (vellum family and friends)
