Lotstodo Week 10 - Gorgeous Gesso


I created the background for this mini canvas using adirondack dimensional pearls, butterscotch, lettuce and wild plum. I painted gesso onto some bubble wrap and stamped it onto the canvas. I then wrapped a rubber band around a thin tube, covered that with gesso and rolled it over the canvas.

I transfered a couple of basic grey flourish rub-ons onto the canvas, printed the main image onto acetate and attached, stamped the word 'dreams' from the CI plate 156 onto a piece of card, cut it out and attached bottom left.
