I really wanted to focus on texture, so I pulled out my super old coagulated gesso that I was going to toss, but decided to keep (just in case).
It has almost solidified, but was still smear-able.
I gooped some on a playing card and let it dry.
Then I got the card wet, and added four different shades of yellow paint.
I really liked how the paint settled in all the nooks and crannies. See:
|This picture doesn't do it justice!|
So, because I didn’t want to cover up all the texture, I only added one embellishment, trimmed it in a coordinating brown, and called it a day.
Simple, but beautiful.
Have a creative day!
