I was very frustrated with my writing so I started this black page with writing, my complaint to the universe. I added gesso and spray ink on top. Then I wrote again, this time more empowering words, covered those with distress stains and then lots of oil pastel. Then I pulled out a stencil and painted the black lines.
I tried writing with gel pen and none of my pens would work over the paint. I ended up using a script liner brush and white paint to do the swirls.
Next I decided to try writing in the colored areas. None of the black markers worked either. I painted over it with medium to seal the oil pastel but that did not work either. At last resort I chose a dip pen and India Ink. The only thing that seemed to work. Finally.
