Week 2 (10th Jan) challenge was:
I pretty much always gesso my page as a primer but rarely use it for anything else. So this week I used it far more. I mixed it with my black and white acrylics for the background (which is really just smearing it on with my fingers) and then used it to create texture by 'scoring' it down the page with an old credit card.
Both stamps are new - picked up in The Range lately for just £1 each. Again, used gesso to add white highlights and tone down the blue on the flowers. I also used those perforated bits that get left behind in notebooks for some background texture. First time I've tried that and was pleased with the effect.
Should be a bit easier to see in this close-up.
