I started out by applying some gesso as a foundation for my design area. Next I opened up my Soap Powder Paint Dabber, used my fingers to spread the paint over the plastic circles, then carefully stamped them across the bottom of my gessoed area. The circles stood out a little more than I wanted them to, so I added a little gesso over them. Of course, I was too impatient to wait until the paint had dried, so it smudged a little, but I like the messy look. :)
Next I used Fountain Pen Re-inker to make a mist. I put 10 drops in my Mini-Mister and then filled it halfway with tap water. Once again I was impatient and misted before the gesso was completely dry. This resulted in a more blended look in the wet patches. Cool!
I did wait till everything was dry to do my embellishing and journaling. Oh! and I am pleased to report that I finally used one of our new ink pads, Fountain Pen again, for actual stamping. Two thumbs way up! I had so much fun playing with inky painty mediums on this one. You should give it a try!
