Texturing Canvas

I bought 14 inexpensive larger canvas today to texture. Why? Randy Blasquez did a beautiful painting demonstration and talked to us about how she textured her linen canvas. Now I want to experiment with texture,  too. So I brought out my big bucket of gesso to cover the inexpensive canvas.  I want to be sure the Golden Acrylic Gel I want to use will stick properly. I read where if you used cheap canvas that isn't properly primed it might flake.

let me know how it goes....you never know what you might discover when you experiment. That's what is so fun about it.
