CAS Mix Up May 2020 Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Linda!

This Month's Challenge

Message from Linda
We have a fun technique for you this month using Gesso.
Gesso is a bit like white paint, and is traditionally used as a primer to prepare surfaces
before adding paints.  It's also a fab product to use as a resist. 
Different Gessos give different results.  Check out the video links below .... and have fun!
