Gelatos,Gesso and a PaperArtsy Stamp

Me again Bloggers! 
Another Journal page that I created
 whilst at my Workshop, last Sunday.
This page was painted first with Gesso.
When that was dry, I added a layer of  
White acrylic paint.
After making sure the paint base was dry 
I applied various colours of
 Gelatos stick paints over the top,
 added some water and allowed the colours to drip.
My friend, Chris Hearn had nicer 'drips' than the rest of us.
Chris reckoned we were all suffering from 
 Drip Envy!
More drying then Distress inks applied through a Tim Holtz Stencil.
The main stamped images are 
from PaperArtsy
Thanks for popping over to my Blog. 
Enjoy your day
Eileen xx
