It is really fun to take magazine pages and junk mail and turn them into colorful journal pages.
Mostly I use watered-down acrylic paints and just spread it on the page to cover any parts I don't want. Sometimes I like to leave some of the pictures or text visible.
It's also fun to collage some napkins or tissue paper on top of the painted papers.
And here is the whole family (including our dogs) gathered on our front porch.
For some reason, it seems very quiet around the house today!
