I am really sorry to be asking this as it's prolly been asked stacks before already but...

I'm making a jorunal (my first one).  It's a pretty run of the mill type thing but I managed to smear PVA glue in a couple of spots on it so it has these kind of shiny patches.  one of them will be easy to cover up but i'm not so sure about the others.  if it was for myself i wouldn't really care but it's a gift.

also, what is the best way you guys would recommend to stick a photo onto cardboard.  would just plain glue work okay?

thanks for your help, i'll be sure to post photos of the book once it's done!!

I haven't had much luck removing PVA smears...  I've attempted to use a very fine grain sandpaper with limited results, but that method depends on what kind of paper or fabric the glue is stuck to.  in some cases I've just invented embellishments to paste on over the smudges.   Wink

but are they really noticeable to other people, or just you because you're the one making it?  I think that, if it's a gift, the recipient will be delighted that it's handmade and not so concerned with little mistakes.  after all, it's your first one, and you're not a machine.

if it's on fabric or book cloth you can put a slightly damp paper towel over it and iron and it most likely will lift up or improve matters.

oh, and be sure to try on a piece of scrap paper first!  wouldn't want you to make things worse on the project itself.

I couldn't find sand paper that wasn't like gravel so I tried with an emery board.  I could get off a couple of the less obvious ones but the emery board sort of scratched to cardboard a bit, so I didn't use it for the bigger smears.  I think I'll just leave it or put a book plate on the inside cover, which is where most of the glue is.
