I did the background with an under-journaling technique that I first saw here. I changed it up a bit. I used watercolor crayons to journal, and when I was done, I went over it with a wet brush to obscure the writing and make my background. I used several different colors: pink, yellow, orange, and red. I really like under-journaling because I have a hard time writing anything that other people might see.
I found the girl in a magazine and doodled on her with a black pen and a white gel pen. The rest of the page was done with a couple of stencils and Sharpie-type markers and doodling with white gel pen.
