Mixed Media Backgrounds

Below are a few test pieces using the watercolour, gesso and acrylic paint method mentioned in my last post inspired by Helga Strauss.
On the first piece of cardstock I have used a castle stamp from Lindsay Masons new designs along with the geese from my Nature set.

The Gesso gives fantastic texture to the cardstock as you can see in the close up picture below.
I"m currently working on a quick PDF tutorial for this technique which I will post here as soon as it is finished so don't forge t to check back!

  1. Hi Andy,
    I have just tried this and it is soooo cool, it seems as long as you get the colour selection right it works and the texture is not too high so stamping on top is easy!

    thanks for this,

    Sandy x
