What do you get when you mix Gesso and Pearl Ex? Ahh an interesting background for a card. Apply Gesso to your card front with a stiff brush making hills and valleys. Then while the Gesso is still wet add small amounts of Pearl Ex with a dry brush. This creates complexity and yet a very subtle background. Once the Gesso has totally dried you may need to iron on the back to get your card stock to lay down flat. I added a stamped image that shows the texture of the Gesso along the side. The flower was stamped on 3M Transparency Film in Staz-On Black and cut out. On the reverse side of the stamped image I added color using a Marvy marker a little bit at a time. Stamp the word Dream in black directly on the Gesso and Pearl Ex. Again add another small gold ribbon. I mean what would anything be without a ribbon? Secure the flower to card front with Diamond Glaze.
Glad you are here to share a part of my life. My artwork and designs are such an important part of who I am. So the time has come to display a few of my projects with you.
