    It’s amazing how in the few short weeks since I acquired this book my perception of it has changed.

    It is no longer simply a book I bought from Amazon …. it has become my treasured experimental journal. It has gone from being a pristine empty tome, to a highly colourful extremely tactile piece of art. It still has lots of blank empty pages waiting to be experimented on, but they are slowly disappearing.

    I can’t remember the last time I got hold of some pens and just scribbled with them …. but I really must try to do it more often – it’s so liberating!! And it looks good as well 🙂

    I’m getting quite addicted to cutting holes in pages …. for this hole I used a grungeboard key as the template for the first hole, then made each successive hole a little smaller. I’m quite pleased with the way it came out!

    I stuck the cut outs on the facing page.

    I still have lots of fun pages to do and some major wrecking processes to try out, so keep watching!!
