Painting with Distress Ink on Gesso surface

Who likes painting with distress ink over a gesso coated surface?

This girl!


I used the new Dina Wakley Stamps (affiliate links used) that are available at shops like Ellen Hutson and Simon Says Stamp. I also used Dina’s gesso, a wide variety of distress ink colors, my beloved Heidi Swapp gold mist, and of course some of the ever amazing NEW Tim Holtz phrase stickers. Of course I’m not going to just tell you how I did this, I’ll show you!

I hope you enjoy my tutorial – and try some painting with inks of your own!

  1. This is beautiful. I love the softness of the ink, but the texture the gesso gives. Those stamps are awesome. The phrase stickers are on my wishlist. Michelle t

  2. Hey may, I have a question about using your sewing machine to stitch on your projects. Do you use a special needle for that or just use any needle and not use it on fabric after that?
