"Distressed Gesso" for "SaWo"


The challenge at Saturday Workout this week is to make a piece with a distressed gesso background.
Well I've had a go at it and added a transfer done onto clear sticky packaging tape. I really enjoyed sploshing around and making a lovely mess !
Here's my ATC....and thanks for the challenge guys !
The "distressed Gesso Background Technique" has a tutorial on the wonderful Trish Bee's blog. You can read it here

I think I need to learn this technique - I've been trying out new techniques for my canvas paintings...there is so much out there now for texture and transfer, and I know not much of any of it! I did recently discover, at a class, the wonders of GAC 100. And it's easy to use!

Went browsing all of your tags and ATCs - you are truly dedicated and your work is wondeful! Thanks for sharing!
