I'm thinking about using one for my December daily, but the edge is pink and clashes with my traditional colors. I was thinking of misting it with a brown? Any advice?

Are you wanting to mist the chipboard part or the fabric spine? Or both?I've altered the chipboard section by putting masking tape over the fabric part of the album. But I'm not sure what kind of result you would get from misting the fabric part of it.

Sorry that's not very helpful.

Thanks. I'm wanting to color the fabric spine a different color & cover the chipboard with paper.

Can you test a spot on the inside of the album?

Hi. I painted the canvas spines of several BoBunny Barenaked albums with fabric paint and they turned out fine. I found the paint at J's or M's and it was in the t-shirt painting area. With yours already having a color, you might have to choose a color that's darker than what the spine color is now. Remember to paint the spine first and then alter the cover - I forgot to do this to one of mine and it was much harder the other way around! Good luck with your project. Maria

abbypea, I used bottles of fabric paint, same consistency of regular acrylic paint. In fact, there is an additive that you can add to any acrylic paint to make it work on fabric. I just used a foam brush to apply the paint and it worked pretty good. Good luck. Maria

You could also try the chalk inks, I don't think the mistables would give enough coverage. You could also take a different fabric (ribbon?) and put it over the spine. I've run fabric through the Xyron and attached it to the albums.
