journal page with alcohol inks and gesso


I used chip board letters and covered them with regular kitchen foil on this page.  I was hoping to get more texture with the foil but I realized I had the Tim Holtz texture hammer and so I had at it.  The texture hammer worked great.  I will have to hide the hammer from the men in this house.  They always want my cool tools and they don't put them back.
I then applied gesso to the page.  After that dried I applied the alcohol ink.  I also added a kirigami cut  out.  I like that the foil shines through the alcohol inks. 
The inks did bleed through to the back of the page so I will have to paint over that.
