Hello there! Today I’m going to share with you my scrappy way to use gesso in spray format and do a colorful layout with lots of small pictures and embellishments.
First of all, I used a sketch from Studio Tekturek. I think it is a very funny sketch: you need to use three photos and draw something. That is kind of fun, yay! I used the Hey Kiddo collection from Studio Tekturek, in amazing purple colors. I put all my pictures with this lovely boy on a base and checked if it looked good before going any further. Later I added others papers and cards.
When I’m matching papers I like to be spontaneous; I really enjoy it. When my preliminary work is done, I use a cardboard box and spray the whole background paper base with gesso spray. It is a new kind of product for me. I always used gesso in a tube, but now I love this spray with my whole heart. It is easy, it is quick, and it looks amazing!
When the gesso was dry, I built my layout on top. I used lots of amazing stickers, badges, and wood veneers.
I stitched some shapes and filling some cross-stitch from heart card.
I added alpha-words, more stickers, and more embellishments. I love to create this way!
Finally my layout is done! It is colorful, vivid, and a little bit funny. And please, do not be afraid to use as many embellishments on your works as you wish!
Thank you so much for reading me today, it was fun! Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!
