Gesso sprayed with Dylusions on Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine

Ok, I know I  am a bit late posting the results of coloring the Gesso on the Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine! I finally got around to editing it, only to see the video is a bit wonky! I am not sure how I filmed it, but I think you can follow along anyway :D.

So without further ado- here is the video:

The original post can be found here-

And here is an picture of the results:

Gesso, Glassine and Art Journal

Well, it has been a while since I have done a video, so this week I decided to show something I have started to do in my Art Journals. I use Clear Gesso, Stencils, and Kraft Glassine by Tim Holtz to make frames.


Scroll Owl on Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine Paper

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!
