Gesso on photographs ATCs

These 3 ATCs began life as photographs in a gardening magazine. I painted them with a thin layer of white gesso, then used a Versamark pen to draw dots and lines on the images. Finally, I sprinkled gold embossing powder and heated. Thye remind me of Cloisonne work, but in chalky pastels!


  1. Wow, how effective do these look.

  2. Lovely
    i am still trying to do some that i am happy with.
    Have a great weekend

  3. Wow- that is awesome.
    We need to try this with some of our own photos...

    I wonder what the best paper to print them on would be to get this type of effect...

  4. Love the look of these and I bet they are even better in "real life". I am going to have to give this a try.
