Cut up a few pages from a book and adhere randomly on the scrapbook paper. No need to cover the whole page just a few here and there will add interest. Dry the page.

Select a few colors of craft paint and put in a pallet. Use an old gift card to scrap the paint all over the scrapbook paper. By scraping you will get thinner layers and these can almost be transparent. Apply as much paint as you like to get the color you want, but do so in thin layers and let each layer dry.

Stencil with paint using the blending tool. Use a daubing motion or pounce motion to apply the paint. Dry the paint and repeat on the backside.
