Dream journal – stage one.

Another way to prepare a background for dream journal pages is with this simple watercolor splat technique. Gather some paint on a brush, shake the brush over the paper (or rap the brush handle on your arm, above the paper), and random dots and splats of color land on the page.

You can also use ink for this technique. For example, Noodler’s Inks, are waterbased. You can splatter with one or more water-based colors, let the paper dry, and then write over the splats with another color. I recommend one of the permanent blacks to keep from smearing.

Another advantage of Noodler’s Ink is that if you like to write with a fountain pen, Noodler’s will not clog or damage the pen, as most inks will eventually do (because they are acid, while Noodler’s is not).
