Willing to Try Something That May Not Work?
This is the perfect quote for this page. The page began painted with a combination of green paint and gesso. Then I added three colors of honey comb rows. A yellow, a light green and a orange yellow. The page was very ugly.
In the past, a page this ugly would have really gotten me down. I just looked at it and thought.."there's always gesso." I painted over the whole page with watered down gesso. Then I used a baby wipe and the stencil to wipe off some of the gesso. I added some washi tape to give it a little pop. The letters are stenciled using the negative from a Tim Holtz alphabet die cut that was sitting on my table.
I didn't give up and now I like this page very much. I hope you will try one more thing on a page you are not happy with this week. Please let me know how it turns out.
