Today's Adventures in Texture takes us to the use of gesso and a rubber stamp. This journal page started out bright and red, but as time went on, it ended up kind of dark.
I painted a double page spread with red acrylic paint and let that dry. Then I swiped some clear gesso down one side of one page. I let that dry somewhat (about 15 minutes because I'm impatient, but I should have waited about 10 minutes longer).
