I started by painting gesso on the interior pages. This adds a little weight to the pages as well as give you a great surface for journaling on. I let some of the text show through for interest.
This is a great gift for all ages.

Sometimes you have unfinished paintings or you have grown as an artist since you did the piece or there may be a million other reasons you don't like a piece. Or perhaps trade with a friend. So let's add paper clay. It may turn out great and/or be a wonderful learning experience.
Old painting or background
Find an old painting finished or not that you have hidden in your studio. Look at it and think about how you can improve upon it with Creative Paperclay®.
Roll out the paper clay onto your art. I like to dampen the surface slightly. I loved the fact that the piece has curved edges so it was easy to wrap the paper clay around the edge.
It will feel great to add life to an old painting. Have fun.
