The Wings Workshop on the Go and Spring/Summer Idea book contain a new tool, the spray pen, that adds a different texture to your artwork and is easy to use! Below is the "how to video". Following is some artwork I have done using the spray pen and some tips.

"For the multi colored images:
I used the baby wipe & re-inker technique – took a folded baby wipe and used Vineyardberry, Bamboo & Black re-inker squirted onto the wipe. There’s lots of ways to ink the baby wipe but I like to have a main line of a light color – I started with the bamboo – then added vineyard berry to one side towards the top and then the other side towards the bottom – then filled the rest in with the black. I LOVE the effect you get with this technique."
I place the baby wipe on my 4 x 6 block so I have a large, flat surface to work with. You can also see the "puddle pad" technique in the April 13th 2010 Art & Soul webisode "Live Your Dreams".
Give it a try...so much fun!
