Today I did work on the album.  I pulled both covers off and tried to color the white brick paper.  What I discovered was this.  Thin scrapbook paper is not made for coloring mediums.  It was a mess and I couldn’t figure out a way to redeem it.  In the end, I spilled a small container of water onto the paper and decided to throw it out.  I can’t decide how I could have done anything differently, so my next move is to take gray paper and use texture paste on it to make it work.  I think I’ll make the texture paste a mixture of gray and tan, as the photos of the bricks make it look brown in one light and gray in another.

I guess we’ll see how that plan goes, but for now, at least I have a plan…not a great one, but a plan.
