  9. Then we needed some alphabet letters and used our watercolors for brightness and fun. One plain color and leave it to dry…. then a couple of contrasting colors with thick watercolors – (only dip your brush in water once or twice)… for madly decorated alphabet letters. There you go a couple of letters.

  11. Finally a quick cut and stick on to some contrasting paper and our book covers are good to stick onto our journals…
