Hey there everyone, Stacy here with you today sharing a fun mixed media mini album with you. For the base pages of this album i cut down a couple of pieces of corrugated board to about 6″ x 6″. I tore a few spots around the outside of the pages, then painted them with the Art Anthology gesso. I of course did one side of all the pages, let it dry, then flipped it over to do the back sides. The entire back of the album I didn’t put any paper on so I painted with the gesso all over.
My pattern paper is about 1/4″ smaller then the board, I inked the edges and then centered it on the board with my Xyron Mega Runner. Next was the fun part and just placing all the embellies on. Here is the final project below.
You can see that the Gesso works fabulous covering metal embellishments also.
I wanted to add a little stencil work also in the corners, so I grabbed the new Sandstone Stone Effects and added bits of that.
Art Anthology – Gesso , Stone Effects (Sandstone)
