Speedy Fox & Friends - Gesso

Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope you are enjoying this first Saturday in February!  We weathered Snowjam2014 and are still here to tell about it!  :)  It was quite the adventure.  My husband's commute home was quite tense as cars crawled and slid.  His 45 minute commute ended up taking him 4 hours!  Which in no way set any records in Atlanta.  Most would say he got off easy as many were stuck in their cars 12 - 21 hours! 

All the excitement is behind us now and things are getting back to normal just in time for this week's Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge.  This week we are going to use Gesso or white paint on our cards.  I chose one of my favorite techniques: Gesso Resist to create an interesting backdrop for the swans. 


For the inside I kept it very simple with one swan and a sentiment.

  5. A beautiful card and it did make a wonderful back drop. I will have to see if I can find a tutorial for the gesso resist. I wondered how you all faired with the bad weather. Glad your dh made it home okay.
