Gesso Resist


Gesso Resist
Originally uploaded by Cheryl Gebhart

For lesson 3 in Artful Journaling Explorations, I used white gesso to paint a pattern on watercolor paper (which I took from a piece of patterned paper). After the gesso was completely dry, I used watercolors to paint over it and the gesso resisted the watercolors. Then I cut a hole in the page where the daisy is (which I painted in my first lesson). So this page serves as an overlay.

This turned out so pretty! As you know, I haven't done this assignment yet...I had to go buy some gesso. I did that, so now I don't have an excuse; I'm simply procrastinating!
