The Gesso Swap is swapped out. I will drop it off at the PO tomorrow.

Another great swap. Thanks, everyone! Our scanner is down so it will be a while before I am able to scan and post the art, but since you all are getting everyone's ATCs, you will see them all in just a few days. Please feel free to ask details about their art or technique.

You will be getting 2 gesso ATCs from me -- I just was having too much fun. The second one I made was a technique that intrigued me and I just had to try it. Gesso & Baking Soda. Just mix a little baking soda into the Gesso and spread it on your surface. Stamp into the wet mixture to get cool texture. When dry I stamped the weeds (Pat, I was anticipating your Weed Swap) with black India Ink. At the end I sprayed it with clear acrylic sealer. It is very fragile. I hope it arrives in good shape. If not, you have the second one from me.

Gesso swap arrived today. I completely forgot these were coming. And, completely forgot they were all gesso techniques! Thanks to everyone. They are all different and all lovely.

I am glad to hear they are starting to arrive. Did the Gesso & Baking Soda arrive uncrushed?
