Everything goes better with Giggles | I Challenge You with busy Patterned Paper | Workshop by Celine Navarro

Happy Friday! What a glorious week we had and it is even getting better next week they say! Well, lets see when it really happens.

Today’s challenge for you is/was a challenge for me as well! My friend Marjan suggested a workshop over at Big Picture Classes “5 Ways to use Gesso” by Celine Navarro (find her HERE). The first challenge was to mute a very busy background paper (and normally these papers are really lovely but not so easy to use) with white Gesso and build your layout onto this.

I’m not totally convinced yet with the background (need more practise I think) and I could have gone more round the edges with the Gesso, but it is ok. I stayed very close to Celine’s version and even used some very old rub-ons (they still worked after all those years!).Better with Giggles - dapfniedesign -

I also found a variety of stickers in my stash which I normally wouldn’t have used otherwise. All in all I think a successful page I think!

And now the challenge is yours: Take a really busy background, mute it with Gesso and build your layout onto it! I am looking forward to your versions!
