Walnut, Sumi and Gold.

I love to make backgrounds.  I know people who enjoy the paste paper process, others who enjoy suminagashi.  I like watercolor paper, sumi and walnut inks with a bit of Schminke or laid gold thrown in for fun.  I work wet-in-wet on half sheets of watercolor paper that I can later cut down. I like the wet technique because half the fun are those wonderful surprises you find when the paper dries.  Here are a few to whet your appetite for something simple.
