Use masking tape to make a pattern on prepared pages. Then experiment with different colors, brushes, and sponges in the white gesso areas left exposed. When dry, carefully remove the masking tape. Use the grid pattern for planning, day-dreaming, or list-making. I used mine to list the various themes for art journals (larger lettering) with the sub-themes for each category (small lettering).

Use different watercolor combinations and sponges to create unique textures.
