Painting Technique - Gesso

I did a little painting tutorial for the AMM blog yesterday with this layout - you can check out the details here.

I used my favorite stand by - Gesso! Gesso is my most used art supply. Loving this color combination with the Prima and Sassafrass and the windows.

I have been completely overwhelmed by the response to The Next Step!! Thank you all so much for your support and comments - I can't wait to get started on Monday with the first technique. I'll give you a hint - you'll be using paint and stamps. Hmmmm....sound interesting? ;) I noticed some of you are already spreading the word about the blog and I can't tell you how much that means to me! You can pick up a blinkie on the site if you never know if I might want to do a RAK for someone. ;)

I've been busily working on some other new stuff that I will be sharing soon for NSD at AMM but that's all for now. Oh, Did you see the new Webster's blinkie!! Isn't it cute?
See you soon!
