Ancient Text Background

my daughter's 9x12" painting on watercolor paper with black neocolor II wax crayon

my 9x12" painting on watercolor paper with 5 different neocolor IIs

My daughter (9) invented this technique with neocolors and water. She typed the instructions on the computer and here they are!

i wrote a bunch of nonsensical stuff...

This is a fun technique for creating an abstract page which can be used as an art journal background or cut up and used as part of a collage or paper weaving.

How fun is that?
