Golden Digital Grounds on Canvas

After my first experiment with Golden Digital Grounds on Rice paper, I was itching to try canvas. So I grabbed my Canvas Pad and cut out a piece. I brushed some text on randomly first
with some Sumi-E ink. While I was applying the Digital Grounds to prep the surface I did noticed some smudging, but it wasn't too bad as long as I applied the digital grounds in gental strokes. Once that was dry (and I was impatient so I shot the surface with my heat tool and it dried much faster) I ran it through my epson inkjet printer. It worked! The only thing was it came out with some lines and I don't know why. I thought perhaps my printer may need its heads cleaned or something-but I printed the same picture onto regular printer paper after this printing and it was fine. It could be the canvas surface. At any rate, I like the way it came out and I can see this being used on an art journal page for sure!
