Using Gesso on Layouts with Camilla Ekman

Hi all! Camilla here today with two layouts. The first one is made with the Happy Travels collection, perfect for soft boyish layouts – the blue and beige looks awesome together. The title “I carry your heart with me” is from one of the cardstock stickers. I cut the edges to make it a banner. I dabbed a bit of gesso on the papers to make them a bit white washed.

The next layout is made with the Pretty in Pink collection – soft pink papers but a bit edgy with the black. I made a girlish page for my daughter. A bit of paper tearing and a bit of gesso added.
