Start by drawing big shapes in your journal with the gold leaf pen. I drew my initials JN. Make sure you go off the page here and there.
Then add smaller shapes within your large initials.
Pick a color scheme warm or cool. I chose a warm palette so I painted all my shapes with yellows, oranges, reds and combinations of these colors. The gold leaf pen lines will act as a resist to the paint.
