Hi! Welcome to Messy Monday with me - Aimee Dow. I know, right? I was the absolute last person you expected to see here today. When we first started discussing assigning themes to days of the week, I said "Fantastic Idea, uhh but Messy Monday's are all yours.". This past month though, I've been so transfixed by the stencil in the cupcake kit that I thought I would try something new.
I went to stay with my Mum, who is really awesome with Mixed Media. I asked her to give me a quick lesson in gesso/texture paste and what I discovered was really very interesting. I don't hate it. And by that I mean that with enough paper towel and baby wipes to stay clean, it's actually quite fun. This is a huge thing for me. Would you like to see what I came up with?
I used the polka dot stencil on the top with some Prima texture paste. Should I ever attempt it again, I would certainly be looking for a paste that is a true white (suggestions welcome).
I finished the layout off with a few stitched elements. All in all, the only things not in this kit were a few wood sequins I happened to have lying around.
Thank for stopping by,
