I used a copy of Pride & Prejudice, one of my all time favourites, which I found in a charity shop. I have since learned that the best books to use are those that are stitch bound, as they are more robust. This one is not stitched, and so has slightly fallen apart in some places.
There is no real theme to this book, as I was learning and trying out several techniques and layouts, experimenting with paint, glazes and stamping. Here is a selection of the pages.
Using a cut window to show part of the following page.
For these pages, I incorporated pockets, and inserted stamped and captioned images.

The next page also shows a collage I made of myself.
Finally, I cut a niche into the last third of the book, and made a goddess doll out of painted fabric interlining, beads and half a fabric flower. Opposite is some stamped UTEE.
Reviewing this book has reminded me how much fun I had, and perhaps I'll do another one. It also shows how far I've come with the painty, inky thing!
