apply gesso, then write into it while still wet, i used the end of a small paint brush. i also rubbed some of the gesso away.
at this stage i wrote in texta & oil pastels, scribbled with the pastels, added more gesso then rubbed some off with a wet towel, & sanded away some of the colour with an emery board, & added more writing with inktense water soluble pencils. the post after this one is my second try at nudges 6 & 7. i liked it at this point so left it as is.
