 Detail of page one There is more Journaling inside the File Clip-art: Watch Open Clipart.org Computer Font: Courier New

 Detail of page two with Collage tag Emphera label from Sassyarts Clip-art: Watch Open Clipart.org Matt Plaid Modge Podge and brown shoe polish.

Notes: The shoe polish darkened the clip-art and brought out the edges. I don’t know if I like the brush marks, which I didn’t see before. What do you think? In future I will use a sponge brush. I used Lab Hydrion pH Test paper to test the Kiwi  Shoe- polish and Modge Podge and they weren’t Acidic.

Planning on my magnetic board.
