One of the fun things we did was to search the little French shops for dinner napkins. I found some that were a replica of Vincent Van Gogh's poppy painting.
Here is how to use them as a starting point on a journaling page:1. Most napkins are made up of 3 very thin layers. Peel them apart and glue the top one with the design on it on a page in your journal. I used mat medium. I painted it under and on the top of the napkin.
2. Using the design as a guide, paint a similar design out past the napkin. Take clues from the colors and shapes found on the napkin.
3. Below is a page from one of my travel journals and shows how I used napkins to create a travel collage. Can you guess which parts are the napkin?
