I worked some samples for my wallhanging. I was inspired by Angie Hughes book, Stitch, Cloth, Paper and Paint to use gesso with fabric and paper.
I played around with gesso, painting it onto fabric
I used piped calico and painted over it with gesso. I would like to try this over machined running stitch
I used handmade papers (from a selection by Artvango) and painted them with gesso
