    I have done this with TH Distress Ink too. Works great but love how she paints over it in white on an art journaling page. Wonderful!

      I finally tried this cool watercolor painting technique on some backgrounds in my art journal. Very, very cool!

    • Barbara Murphy

      elvie studio, use water soluble markers like brush pens, a mini mister to wet with water, an acrylic block to smear it. Simple!

    • Sadie MacMillan

      A lovely watercolor-y effect without the paintbrush. This would be a neat, low-mess way to create a background for drawings, letter-writing, collage art and other altered-art techniques...Cool idea! From elvie studio: how to create a lovely art technique with a few simple supplies.

      Elvie Studio: "a simple way to create a "painted background" without having to get your paintbrush out......all you need is your journal, your favorite water-soluble markers (i use tombow brush pens), an acrylic block, and a mini mister."

    • Patricia Beaver

      Water soluble Tombow Brush Pen color is brushed on an acrylic block. It's misted with a mini-mister and rubbed across the paper, in as many colors and layers as desired. Diluted white gesso is applied and allowed to dry in areas where you want to write in your journal. Visit link for more details.
