Using your paint, lay down your colors. Make sure the paint is thin for a transparent look. Here I used colors on the same side of the color wheel.  Vary the colors & your placement by layering paint

Using your stylus, nib and ink, start to color in your images. I used a purplely-blue as I wanted the ink to be muted against the background. I joined my images with lines to unite them visually.

Once everything is inked in, I stamped more words and the Chinese symbol for eternity. I hope this helps you create your own multimedia work!! Have fun!!!
