Colored Hole Reinforcers

by Debbie-Anne

I love adding page reinforcers/reinforcement labels in my junk journals and art journaling. I have found a way to color them myself.

One way is to use ink sprays but these aren't permanent inks, so I've been using Distress Paint because it dries permanent and little more opaque than sprays or stains.

It's really easy to do. I just swirl paint onto the small sheets of reinforcers and let dry. I also do this on small circle stickers for my planners or journals. I sometimes make several sheets of various colors at a time so that I have them on hand when I start a new project.

They add a perfect splash of color on hang tags, pages, planner calendars, and more!

Would these coloring tips work?
by: Windy City Woman

Would felt-tip markers work? You'd want to use the permanent ones, not the wash-off ones. And what about colored pencils? I don't know if these would work with the newer plastic reinforcements, but the old ones that were paper or fabric would work.

Thank You

Thank you. I tried TH stamp pads, but that did not work. On to distress inks.

Reinforcer hoarder
by: Sandra L

I have to admit. I am a Reinforcer hoarder. I especially love the ones that you have to lick to adhere but they are hard to find.

I love this technique and you could take a tiny design stamp and stamp it after you paint it.
