Mixed media Basics – Why use Gesso

Hi Everyone,
Khyati here and I wanted to share a new series with you all where I will be discussing mixed media basics. For those of you who have been following my crafting journey from the start know that mixed media is what got me hooked to crafting in the first place. Over the period of years I have branched out to a lot of art forms simply because I love trying new art and crafts, some are hit and some definitely a miss but I love the whole process of learning new things and bringing something new for my followers.

Having said that I always feel that its the basics that take more time and we have to work hardest on, once we get them right any art form is a breeze. So I thought I will share a new series with you all where I share basics of mixed media, now please do note its going to be on and off videos where as and when I get time I will be making them as these are normally more indepth then my usual youtube process videos. I also want to keep interactive where you guys can also comment on videos / post and let me know which particular product or topic of mixed media do you want to be covered and I will try my best to cover them.

Also before I get in to the actual video and all the details, I hope you are participating in our monthly Challenge on our blog which is Use Stencil / Patterned Paper
