Layering white gesso on top of black produces a stunning and dramatic background and here I've added just a hint of colour to lift the page.
I used Claudine Hellmuth black gesso to paint the entire page, then using a foam stamp, plastic lid, bubble wrap and store card, I added the white gesso marks.
I also used a Glitz roller doodle stamp with the gesso and the result was perfect. NOTE: clean stamps thoroughly after using gesso as it'll dry on and be impossible to clean off afterwards.
I also stamped in black ink for a subtle background image. Next time I might try stamping with more black gesso for a more dramatic effect but I doubt I could do it with a detailed stamp. Here I've used a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Artful flight stamp set.
