Hi, I am kinda new to scrapping and need some advice from the experts. I want to create a sorority themed scrapbook for my college freshman. I found a beautiful book online that has a mosaic front the problem is that it is hand painted and I can't get it in time for Christmas BUT I could paint one if I could find a book that would be okay to paint on. Do any of you know if I could paint a cover and treat it with something to keep it from scratching? Any suggestions are welcome! THANKS!
