Come Learn with Me…Art Journaling…Glue

I wanted to find out what is the best glue to use in my Art Journal.

I had Matt Medium, Gloss medium/Varnish, glue with water (so it spreads more easily) and Mod Podge
First I used tissue paper to glue down, as it is light weight.
All of the glues, worked great for this.
When I used thick paper (it was water colour paper) all were okay, but when I started to pick at them, the best one was the glue with water. The rest of them peeled up, except the glue with water and the Gloss Medium/Varnish that I added a top coat to.
The reason I added colour to the paper, was to see if the colour would bleed. It did not bleed on any of the glues.

I have more detailed information in my video :)
If you would like to watch my video on my YouTube channel just click on the link "Tracy's Treasures24"
I hope you all had a Creative Tuesday :)

I am so close to completing my art journal page….so close ;)
