At some point, I want to create my own line of greeting cards and papers. I've been playing with stenciling, spray paint, and layering layering layering. This started out as a sheet of scrap paper I coated with white gesso. Let dry (lots of 'let drying' - my most hopeless/impatient phase of any project!) Spray paint series of flowers. Let dry. Layer of clear gesso. Let dry. More spray paint. Let dry. More clear gesso. Let dry. Final spray painted flowers to achieve a balance I wanted. Let dry. Here is the end product -- I really like it! Next I want to try 'burying' little bits in the gesso layers -- words, fibers, small metal pieces, whatever comes to mind.
