The theme for the May Challenge on The Sketchbook Challenge blog is “Can’t Resist” – using resists or journalling about something irresistible or both. First I experimented a bit with resists:

I think the labels are clear enough if you click for the larger version.  The two I find most interesting are the white acrylic ink resist, which apparently only works for other acrylics, and the Crayola oil pastels.  The oil pastels resisted watercolours but not the water-soluble Neocolor IIs, and they actually took the water-soluble pencils more strongly than the non-resist areas – weird!

I decided to write a list of things I can’t resist – just a small selection, as there are a lot of things which I am not good at resisting.  Again, click on the picture for a bigger version.

I used a white Crayola crayon (title and left column) and a clear Sakura Glaze pen (list and right) for my resists, and Neocolor II for the colours. The Crayola didn’t work as well as I’d hoped, though it is more visible in real life, so I tried outlining the title using a white Uniball Signo pen and that helped.
