Learning to Fly

I thought the sentiment on this card was perfect for my young friend Ashley who just turned sixteen . . .

This was yet another happy adventure with gesso:  I wanted it to stay a cloud-like white so I sponged on the background colors first.  After heat-drying them, I used a stencil brush to dab on a few layers of gesso, using my heat gun after each layer.  It was quick, random, and blissfully easy.  A quick rinse for the stencil brush (don't delay with this) and the sky looked great – hope the texture shows in the photo . . .
