Rosemary's Gesso

If you haven't hopped over here, you must! This girl can make anything look fantastic. I love her use of gesso to create an old world finish. Found a mirror and followed Rosemary's instructions....easy and amazing results. My pics kinda stink but you'll get the idea. No before pic though :(

Here it is primed in gray and then I dry brushed a light blue/gray onto the raised areas.

Before the gesso

And it, what a difference!

Thanks Rosemary for sharing your secrets :)

Side note***this sold within an hour of listing in my Etsy shop so thanks again Rosemary!

Hi Sue,

I'm planning to start doing "Featuring, YOU" posts, where I feature some of you who have used my techniques, and so graciously linked back to me. I'd like to have you as one of my features. I'll have a link back to you, and a pic from your blog. Let me know if that's okay.

I'm visiting all my fellow feature ladies from Villabarnes. Wasn't that sweet of her? I love your frame! I think between this and my galvanized finish, nothing will be safe from my paintbrush lol!

Have a super weekend!
