Ten Minute Tuesday

Hello there.  I have missed out on posting for the last couple of Tuesdays as life has been a bit hectic recently.

I am taking part in An Attitude of Gratitude this month and will be blogging a full round up of my pages so far before the weekend but for the moment here's a few of the backgrounds I have prepped ready using Bernice's prompt to have texture  on your page.

For two of the backgrounds I spread texture paste through a stencil, allowed to dry and sprayed with dylusions inks and for the pink one I spread gesso on thickly and heated and bubbled it up with my heat gun before spraying on dylusions inks in pinks, yellows and reds, I love the more muted shades the gesso gave them.  For the final one I spread on gesso, again quite thickly and drew swirls into it with the other end of a paintbrush, let it dry and sprayed with the dylusions inks.  Not too bad for a couple of ten minute sessions.  Just need to get the pages finished and then I will be on track with this month long project.

Hop over to Vicki's blog if you want to join in with Ten Minute Tuesday and you can find Bernice's blog here if you want to join in with An Attitude of Gratitude.


  1. Hi Suzy, I am so in awe of your art. Wish I could pull off some arty stuff. Had a few false starts but then just go back to the cards! Maybe if there was a local meeting I could go to in the evening with someone there to show me their secrets? What do you think - maybe some day?

  3. Some interesting techniques to try, Suzy, I do enjoy messing around with gesso but the results aren't nearly as pretty as these!
