Today’s Art Journal page, features background created using Derwent Inktense art blocks blended with gesso.
I got the idea from a video I watched years ago of Milande who used gesso to blend out Neocolour II crayons and thought it was worth trying here. I love gesso its so versatile and not just for prepping your substrate before creating. I use it to add texture, so blend products too.
I’ll add journalling to this page at a later date but really liked the texture and pastel like effect the blending with gesso created.
How about you? What products do you use in different ways to their intended purpose? What mad professor experiments have you tried with your art materials and did you like the results?
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
