This is inspired by Ms. Terri Sproul. I first used Gesso ( homemade) on the pages, then I painted them with Eler's Squeeze 'n Stencil paint. (purchased at a yard sale). I also used Disney's Princess Stamp Marker purchased at Family Dollar, foam letters purchased at Walmart, the flower stamp I don't remember where I purchased if or the name of the company that made it. I used paper towels in this piece also for texture, the stamp in I use is by Stampin' Up (Real Red), the over stamp that I use is the Galevie Vernissage made by inkadinkado (discontinued stamp)

1/2 c. of hot water, 1/2 c. baby powder (or whatever you want to use), 1/2 c. white glue and 1 1/2 of paint (whatever you want to use for paint.
You need a binder, a pigment and a tooth to make gesso. Here are some ideas on where you can get these ingredients
Binder – PVA Glue or just cheap white glue. Pigment – I get mine from left over latex paint, craft paint or titanium white tube acrylics Tooth – Drywall powder, plaster, talcum powder or baby powder Tee’s Gesso Recipe – scalable to whatever measure you need Binder – 2 Parts Water – 1 to 2 Parts (more or less as needed for consistency) Tooth – 2 Parts Pigment – 1 to 2 Parts
So for example, I put in a cup of glue, a cup or a little more of water, a cup of baby powder and a cup or so of left over paint. Think pancake batter or syrup for consistency. Mix well and test for coverage.
Most of the time I make it up with equal amounts of everything and it’s just fine. I like to see through mine, if you want yours to give better coverage, use more pigment.
