I decided to make another card for the Mix-ability Challenge this week - What's White & Read All Over. I am still "learning" about mixed media and have had fun today playing with Gesso & acrylic paint.
My bg is actually red dp - I put a coat of white Gesso over the dp & it covered most of the red! So then I got a sponge dauber and applied 2 shades of pearlescent red chalk. The frame behind my text I brushed with Bordeaux acrylic paint, when dry applied a coat of Decor Crackle - love the sheen I got from this! My text paper is dp I had here in my stash, I lightly went over this with Poppy Red re-inker & water. Added the blue butterfly & sweater trim for texture and dimension.
Thank you so much for looking!

Sue, you're definitely getting the hang of this stuff....isn't it fun to play with paints and gesso? I like the shine you got on that red panel. Great composition here and the little sweater trim adds just the right little something.
