The background of this spread was done with FolkArt's "Fawn" and "Buttercup" paints. The dragonflies are punched out of a scrap of navy cardstock that had been brushed with Duo Red-Blue Pearl Ex. The word "Spices" was written with a Pentel metallic copper brush pen. The red writing was done with the small end of a RoseArt ColorSharp marker. These are some of the best tools I know of for writing on top of acrylic-painted backgrounds. They never skip, and dry instantly, so you don't have to worry about smearing. The fact that they have dual tips is a nice plus, too! They are available in metallics, as well as matte colors.
