About three posts earlier, I said I thought I wanted to make some fun Post-It note pad jackets...and lookie here. I've actually made a few. These are the fronts.
And these are the backs.
I have also become the newest member of the Gesso Club. I didn't want to join, but I saw no alternative. I have lots of paper that is dark and not very usable for me. The magic of Gesso lightens the paper design considerably to accommodate my love of stamping.
What I don't like about water based paints is the dry dusty feel of it. I did sand lightly to make sure I had a smooth surface. I thought it might also take away some of the "dry feel". Nope. So, when I was done, I sprayed the jacket with a matte sealer. It turned out smooth and most importantly, flexible. Happy camper here!
I know a few people who are going to love these as hostess thank you gifts!
