    In my experience, the ink on newspapers and magazines tends to run or smear easily with some mediums added. I would be cautious about using them.

    A coat of clear matte-finish gesso or all-purpose sealer would prevent smearing.

    Owh, I really wasn't going to sign up for any more swaps until I finish the ones I am in right now.. but this one is just toooo neat. Though since there's no real sign ups.. I guess I am good heh. Lurking for now!

    I have tons of text pages in all kinds of different languages. If someone needs some bookpages, let me know and I can set you up with some! From the top of my head I have Dutch, English, Hebrew, French, Russian, Swedish, Danish, Spanish...

    Okay, I got the 'go ahead' from the hubby to use the book <big grin>...so I am off to see what pages I want to use. They are all verse, so I may make them coincide with the text, who knows??!!!!!
    I love the atcs that have been shared. gave me a nice boost to my creative streak.
