More Gesso Pages in my Poetry Journal


pages primed with gesso and then painted over
papers to dull the colour.
stamping with gesso - on the left stamped in gesso
and painted over with acrylic and on the right, gesso
stamped over acrylic
Maps from travel brouchures collaged, poem
by Lily Brett written over and then gesso
applied over the top to tone down gloss.

megan - bravo for continuing the challenge with the various ways to use gesso. i especially love that first one - your gesso layer "makes it your own". thanks for sharing girl!

You are on a roll! I love all of the applications of gesso you used. How exactly did you do the first one? I love how it looks like faded wallpaper.

Now this is my type of poetry journal! I can't imagine writing in a plain jane journal.
