Art Jouraling 101 – Digital Gesso Textures in Action with Tutorial

Hello Friends! We have a new product to share with you, some new pages from the SBG Gallery, and a tutorial! After my post last week on Everything You Want to Know About Gesso, Tangie released a Digital Gesso Texture Set of  19 “painted” gesso textures (see Art Journal Caravan 2011 Provisions {Parcel 30} Apprentice Art Box Edition By Tangie).  As posted in the description, “It contains 19 gesso “painted” textures in .png format and includes 4 bonus gesso shadow styles in .asl format for PS/PSE users (won’t work in all programs but you can still very easily use the gesso textures!).  It is designed to work well with The Art Journal Caravan. It’s also great for everyday scrapping or altered art projects.”

The Art Journal Caravaners embraced the gesso textures immediately and an outpouring of creations filled the gallery. Here are a handful…please click on the images to give them some love in the gallery.

I have been trying the gesso thing… This page kind of made itself.
There have been some terrorists bombing Oslo, Norway today.
It’s very scary… and the fact that it’s so close INTENSIFY my fears of what’s happening
in the world around us. The world is getting closer to our little corner here in Sweden…
This is my reaction on it.

everything is Tangie’s stuff.




TUTORIAL Using Tangie’s Gesso Textures

I do have a tutorial on how I used Tangie’s gesso textures myself to create an digital art journal page. This is my page…
