Using Testors Craft acrylic paints, you can create a one-of-a-kind journal to help your child remember all of the best events of the summer. Personalize it in unique colors, glitters or metallics so it stands out from all the rest. 

  1. Mask off any journal areas that you do not want to paint.
  2. Using a narrow paint brush, apply your choice of paint color/sheen to the front and back of your journal. Let dry for 30 minutes.
  3. For added fun, apply a coat of Glitter paint or a light coat of a second color for a layered effect.
  4. Let dry for 30 minutes.

TIP: Embellish your journal using washi tape and dimensional embellishments.
