Step 1: I started with this piece of scrapbook paper that I thought would be a little too busy for photos.
Step 2: I used a natural sponge to dab gesso all over the page allowing some of the original color to show through. When it was dry I used some Moon Shadow Inks to color the page.
Step 3: I thought there was too much detail still showing through so I gave it another coat of gesso with the sea sponge. When dry I again applied the inks.
Step 4: I was happier with the look now.I flicked on some of the inks in big blotches. I dried some of these with a heat gun so they would have a brown edge. If you let it dry naturally the glittery color is more even.
