Again... I used Gelatos! I did this layout at a monthly blub... as a spin off the Family Selfie layout. (I'll post it soon).
I clear gesso'ed the paper, then once it was dry I could add colors of gesso to really change the look of the paper and brighten it. I cut the paper up, grunged the edge with a black distress pen, then glued the pieces to the base page. I added some left over embellies from my stash. :))
A great guy layout!
