To make the colorful background, I just simply took a few of my markers and then scribbled onto the paper. Then I grabbed my watercolor brush, dipped it in some water and then began go over the scribbles. I didn't have to use a lot of water and you can still see some of the scribbles/markings, but that's ok. Once the paper dried, I decided to use a sharpie marker to draw some shapes and flowers.
If you use a sharpie in a Moleskine watercolor notebook, there will be some bleed through. You can use a Micron black pen if you want to avoid any bleed through. I chose to use a sharpie since this technique is new to me and I was/am trying to get out of my comfort zone.

Have you tried this technique before?

Until next time...
