    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?
