An ATC design question!
Someone told me if I crinkled up a peice of brown paper bag, then painted it with Gesso, it would look like leather. There must be a clear Gesso, because when I painted mine with white Gesso, it just looked like a white crinkled up paper. I actually used an opened toilet paper roll, cut to 3.5 x 2.5 size. The pic on left is the back, and on the front side after painting on the Gesso, I added some brushed on blue calligraphy ink. From this point now I am stumped as to what I might do to turn this into a work of art! Maybe I should trash it, but something keeps telling me not to. I think it already has a neat look to it. Anybody got any good ideas???
