Butterfly canvas

Today I am sharing an A4 mixed media canvas board I have made using distress ink  a chocolate baroque butterfly stamp, AALL and create #87  stencil and eclipse washi tape ,A studio light grunge stencil ,Tim holtz idea-ology words , hand made gesso , texture paste hand made ( recipes below )and some hand drawn doodles

To make texture paste I use 

Half cup of baking soda or talc or bicarbonate of soda . (I use talc smells nicer )

3 tablespoons pva glue 

2tablespoons white acrylic paint 

You just mix all the ingredients together and  You can make it as thick as you like by adding more talc 

I like mine like a thick mousse texture 

 I make loads at a time and keep in an airtight jar . 

From this mixture you can add things to it to give different textures like fine sand etc 

And add pigment to colour it to make coloured paste 

To make it into gesso just add water to the above mix until you get the texture you like

Both work beautifully and save a fortune making it yourself
