I started my playing with gesso again today - finally - haven't done much, but thought I'd post the bits I do as I do them, so you can see any experiments and disasters and learn from them.......

So here's the first pair. You can see that the gesso (the lighter bits) has acted as a resist to the inks over the dictionary pages and the pages soak up much more ink where there is no gesso, giving an illusion of texture and a variety of colour shades. I used Distress inks (Mustard Seed and Aged Mahogany) over the pages, after applying the Gesso with a Splodger. More experiments as I do them..........
