Thankyou for the wonderful comment! I just used a book from my older sister's book shelf (shhhhh)
I prime all the book pages with gesso because that's what all the books i've read say to do;) I noticed on a page where i didn't use gesso it wrinkled up bc of the wetness. So using gesso is def. worth it! (i bought mine at walmart) And it also helps if you start with a fairly small book..i think my pages are 7x7inches, i tried on bigger pages but it was realllly hard for me so..i guess it's all preference! Other than that I don't know much cause i'm a newbie myself..so have fun and experiment!!! Thanks again!
