Saturday's workout Gesso

The theme today at Saturday's workout is to use gesso. I have a big pot, but so far had not used it much other than for priming, though funnily enough i had wanted to try it with collgae this weekend anyway, so i was really pleased when I saw it was a theme on a challenge site.
I created a 6 x 6" collage, using diffenrent papers, stamping etc. and ofcourse gesso to tie it all together. I've called it Dreams of Innocence, because that's what the image (which is from Chicks57, suggested to me.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
