Thanks for the answer Smiley

I am not usually patient enough to wait, but I try to.

Another questions (I really appreciate your help!!)-
Do your acrylic painted pages stick together? Mine have been lately and I am not sure if it is the humidity or the paint. My modge podged pages are sticking too Sad

anywho, I really appreciate the help!

I'm totally impatient too!! it gets in the way of my projects ALL the time.
Hm thats weird... i would guess probably something to do with the humidity. I haven't had a problem with my pages sticking together.

here's an exerpt from this website: http://stampinmama.typepad.com/stampin_mama_a_mama_that_/2006/07/our_love_affair.html

"Are you having a problems with the acrylic painted pages sticking together. If so, a couple of things you can do - get some Dorland's wax and rub it over the pages then buff with a soft cloth. Or dust the pages with Pearlex. Not only will the pages shimmer, but the dust will help to keep the pages from sticking. Or tip-in a pretty piece of tissue paper between the pages. Just some ideas . . ."

hopefully that will help!

Thanks! I have just had some scraps in their, but I like the idea of the tissue paper. My MIL and SIL suggested spray the pages with cheap hairspray. As one is an artist and the other taught 3rd grade for 30+ years (sending home art projects), I plan to give it a try once I remember to buy some cheap hairspray.

I appreciate the answers to my questions Smiley

This is wonderful!  I'm always looking for inspiration for my own journals, and this has definitely been clipped to my Evernote Smiley
