I love to use acrylic paint in my pages but I wanted a more textured look. I recently got a bottle of gel medium and tried to mix equal parts of the medium with paint. The result is paint that goes on thick without sacrificing the color of the paint. I waould like to share with you a layout I made using gel medium and acrylic paint. You can see the texture at the edges of the layout. I also tried this for stamping and I loved the texture and dimension of the stamped image as compared to an image stamped with ink.
