G is for textured Gesso Background

This technique was one of Trish's Background Noise Challenges
a few years back. I didn't have the black gesso then and I found I was too heavy handed using gold paint. So I'm happy to give it another go.
Thickly spread black gesso on card stock and create patterns with a plastic tool. Let dry.
Instead of using metal paint, I used Metallic Rub-Ons over the pieces. Gold to the piece on the right, and a mixture of blue, purple and silver to the one on the left.

Glad I tried this technique again.
