At this angle you can really see the technique and the first one is sharp - but the second one is a bit more blurred like the actual bokeh photography technique looks. Then here below is the one air dried - which took a couple days -the circles of white are still pretty crisp and clear.
and hers is the one dried with the heat tool - which took a few minutes. The circles lost their definition a little - they actually faded a lot, and I had to go back over them again with more white ink.
Of the two I think the first version is nicer and crisper, but the second a little more water spotty - in a pinch either will work - it's still beautiful. One of the artsy background techniques that will be a bit different every time you do it. Let me know your thoughts! ~Maureen
