Hi everyone! Jill here with a fun project loaded with tons of texture.
As soon as I saw Donna Downey’s art journaling video I knew I had to get my hands on some textured wallpaper! I picked up a roll at my local home improvement store and grabbed my favorite Gelatos®.
- Cut textured wallpaper to card size and adhere to cardstock.
- Prime the surface with a coat of Gesso.
- Color directly onto the surface with Gelatos®. (I’ve listed my color combos in the supplies below.)
- Lightly mist with water, blend with fingertip, and allow to dry.
- Color with Coconut Gelato® onto raised areas and gently blend with fingertip.
- Spray with a fixative when finished.
