I love new challenges and playing with gesso as a resist is new for me. Here I added white gesso through a butterfly stencil on Text Vellum. Once dry I smacked it on color burst in pink and then orange. Added splatters of the orange and a thin coat of clear gesso for a sheen. Cut the aperture sentiment on the Silhouette in layering weight twice and then layered these onto the gesso piece then all on white cs base.
Here is the aperture/sentiment I created in a jpeg if you would like to use it. Better hurry, USA mothers day is a week from today.
This is the second attempt at the gesso resist and this time used clear gesso. Once dry sprayed with mixed media shimmer in a blue. The butterflies took the color of that shimmer but resisted the other water colors I added by smacking. However, I used too much color and the bg became muddy. Broke the color up with a dry embossing. And still was not happy so I tried to correct this by using a bg of color burst mixed with clear gesso on cs for a layer. On some level it works ok.
