This is really beautiful I love the calm feeling of the picture and I like the tea stained paper, it works really well with the colours of the jellyfish, but how are you able to get those white spots there? I've tried the tea staining before and mine does not look like that

Why, thank you.
White spots: I stained the paper using actual loose tea leaves that were pre-soaked and let them dry on the paper overnight. Once dry, I could just brush them off the paper and what was left was the patterns you see here.
It reminded me of sunlight shining through water from the perspective of someone who's submerged, hence the aquatic theme.
