Playing with gesso and acrylic paint
I was thinking of the colour splash over at Play Date Cafe and inspired by Sue Allan ( Sue does wonderful art with natural materials ..Mines nothing like Sue's :) ) when I was playing yesterday, trying to keep things simple. I just sloshed some gesso onto black paper stamped onto it, stamped the butterfly using acrylic paint. Although you can't see them I've stamped little butterflies onto the black card in black ? mmmm :) Didn't know what to do with it so made it into a card. I quite like the end result ( a friend did, she's taken it! )
Wish I'd roughed up/feathered the edges of the gessoed (? spelling :) paper, not sure how that could be achieved ... but will have a go another time
