Make It Monday #123: Making Your Own Paint

Ashley Cannon Newall shows a really fun tutorial on making your custom colored paint with your reinkers and gesso on this week's Make It Monday for Papertrey Ink.

Luckily, I had recently picked up a bottle of gesso at my local Walmart, so I was able to try this very fun challenge. I stamped a linen bag with Stitches and Swirls, then painted it with gesso and reinkers. My card was made by painting the gesso/reinker onto a piece of sticky backed canvas and then stamping my design on. I ran the canvas piece through my Grand Calibur with the Quartrefoil CP as an impression plate to add a little extra texture to the card.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed 4th of July weekend!
