Instant Art Journal Wash Backgrounds

I wanted to share with you a quick and easy tutorial for getting a smooth watercolour or rainbow wash effect on both sides of your journal pages.

  • Step One: Apply a colour medium only on ONE side of your journal page; for this I used inktense blocks scribbled on one side of the page; but you can also use Neocolour watercolour pastels or any spray inks.

  • Step Two: Spray the blank side of the spread generously with water.
  • Step Three: Close the pages and gently rub the backs of them, then open up to reveal and instant multicoloured rainbow background like the picture below:
