Messing Around With Gesso..

I balk at paint... I think I'm worried about making a mistake and not being able to 'undo' it. It's about time I got over it and used this fabulous medium, don't you think?

I had an inspiring afternoon at Julie's yesterday and came straight home, pulled out the gesso and went for it. Yes, they're not exactly masterpieces and actually I don't think they're quite finished yet, but it's a start. I think they still need stitching.

The stamp is from Stampington and images are by Collections. I've also used sequin waste, lots of scraps that were all in reach and sandpaper. These were really quick to make, but the best bit was all the fun I had (despite the mess).

What do you balk at? I say 'get over it and have a go'! You never know, you may have fun, too!
