paint the page, close the book, open again, let paint dry. Add another colour, close the book, open again....... Thick paint, watery paint..... Now I know why these pages look dull and not vibrant...I switched the flash off on the camera..... I am painting the pages of a book I am altering. Somestimes I glue the pages together, sometimes I cut the pages, and sometimes I paint, and all of it is such FUN.
