Whitewashing with gesso

I actually began this page with no direction in mind.
Shocking I know.
I did have a photo though - a very artistic type photo.
I grabbed my Basic Grey and began
by laying down some 3MScotch washi tape - I know.
 It was quite bright so I decided that some whitewashing would mute it a bit.
And it worked.
 Went to the stash BG sent me from the warehouse purchase and ba-zinga...
(I miss Sheldon).
I located quite a few stickers that would work on the page
and began laying them down as well.
 So as usual I got into the spirit of the thing and with a couple of interruptions
we'll be going straight from here to the finished product.
Surprise!!!
I seriously love how it turned out. 
And it works so well with the photo of little Lou.
I'm jealous actually - I'd love to take cool pix like that.

All BG except for Bella Blvd & October Afternoon alphas,
Evalicious (my new favorite) and Cloud 9 buttons and Scotch 3M washi.

I did post this over at Paper Issues and participated in their New Issue.
I am also going to follow them on blog lovin'.
