Step 2: now again fold the newspaper into half, open and stick the two opposite sides . You can use double sided adhesive instead of glue on both parallel sides.

STEP3 ย  Now comes the fun part. The decorations. ๐Ÿ™‚ . First use some white heavy gesso or white acrylic paint on the entire page on one side of the envelope. Make sure you don’t heavily apply the paint or gesso. You only have to prep the page with a light hand strokes.

STEP4 . Then use your fingers to dip in each acrylic bottle of paint and mix and spread here and there randomly. Remember to wipe your hands each time you change the colour. Also, when you mix color, the result should not give you a brown muddy color. Let the paint dry.
