I Gesso!

Do You Gesso?

Hey there! Today’s card is a bit more.. artsy! I’ve seen Gesso used on a few cards, mainly on Kimberly Van Diepen’s blog.. and honestly, I love it. I was into a lot more multi media for a while before I became a Stampin` Up! Demonstrator. I have a collection of artsy stuff that I haven’t used in a while. This was a good excuse to get my Gesso out and use it. I was hoping it wasn’t all dried up in the jar.. and luckly, it wasn’t! Yay! I used some different stamps but I did want to try Kimberly’s technique. What do you think? I love altered collage. I need to do this type of stuff more often!

Supplies I Used:

  • Affection Collection Stamp Set
  • Postage Due Stamp Set
  • Established Elegance Stamp Set
  • Natural Composition Specialty Paper
  • First Edition Specialty Paper
  • World Spectacular Designer Series Paper
  • Whisper White Card Stock
  • Soda Pop Tops
  • Big Shot (to flatten the Soda Pop Tops)
  • 2 1/2 in Circle Punch
  • Snail Adhesive
  • Stampin Dimensionals
  • Gesso – found at craft stores
  • Vintage Trinkets

The Gesso on the Naturals Composition Specialty Paper looks so cool.. the photo doesn’t do it justice. If you try this, just make sure to put a very light layer on, with a sponge tip applicator. Using a paint brush would probably not work as well.
