The Blank Page and How to Face It!
Art Challenge: Gesso
Journal Prompt: “The beginning is always today.” -Mary Shelley
I gesso'ed the entire page. Then brayered some thick acrylic paint over the entire page. Used a flower stencil and sprayed black ink over. Outlined the flowers with white pens, liquid pearls, stickles. Added some washi tape and painted a square of gesso to white the quote using black pens. White paint on the edges and made black dots with black acrylic and an eraser.
Sprayed the finished piece with Spectra Fix Degas Pastel Fixative but it made slotches in the black Dylusion ink spray. Darn it.
