I work on backgrounds and decorative paper quite often. It's like therapy and it makes lots of personalized materials to chose from for other projects. I have been trying to get some results I like with watercolors. Recently I purchased some watercolors in tubes instead of pans. Here's the result of some play with those and watercolor pencils, crayons, and oil pastels as resists. I really like these pages and the colors seem more me than any so far.
