I love the Kraft Glassine paper by Tim Holtz, but sometimes it is hard to stamp on it, and render some brighter colors on it. I came up with an idea that worked well for me. I used Clear Gesso as a fist layer on the Kraft Glassine. I painted Clear Gesso onto the Kraft Glassine, and let it dry. The I stamped Easy Scraps Scroll Owl rubber stamp using Versafine Black ink. I masked the image and used a variety of sprays- Dylusions Ink Sprays by Ranger, and Shimmering Mists by Tattered Angels. The inks showed up a lot brighter on top of the Gesso!
And here is the result….
I willl have some other ideas using gesso in the next few week, Enjoy!
