Portugal Journal Cover
Today, I added the typewriter key stickers to the front of my Portugal journal and "usghhhed" the inside cover, first page and first spread. I'm not happy with the results of the watercolors on the card stock or on the inside cover... I never thought about using watercolor paper for my pages, so will be experimenting on scrap card stock before I do anymore pages. The card stock curls with the adding water to the paint to get the effect. Maybe I will try ironing them to smooth them out after they are dry. I certainly don't want "curly" pages. If that is effective, then I will be painting all of the pages before I add elements and journaling. I am hopeful it will all come together and my issues will be resolved !! The map I used for the inside cover is glossy, so I should have sanded it a bit before painting it. I will be doing something more to it before I am happy with it. Live and learn !!!
