I spread some gesso on a paper surface, used a fork (won't be used to eat with again !) to obtain some design in the gesso, cutted some lace-scraps and putted them in the gesso.
Once the gesso dry, I used my pastels and watered the whole page with a fine brush.
I tried the same with gel medium and used butterfly-stencils, I added watercolours to accentuate the relief.
Hhere I used gesso again with the butterfly-stencils and I added critter-stamps.
To speed up the drying process, I used my hair-dryer.
To fix the colours on fabric or paper I even use my iron.
My kids have to pay attention which iron and iron-table they use otherwise...
