The soft color and faded effect can be put to good use especially in the small confines of a journal. If you want consistent color, fill a waterbrush with watercolor or fountain pen ink. The chamber doesn’t need to be full to work well. Noodler’s would be a good choice since it is economical and can be stretched with the addition of a little water. Use the same ink in your fountain pen for a monochromatic piece. Or pick contrasting colors for playful pages. Aqua and peach anyone?
