I knew your work from the tiny preview pic & I recognise that book Wink  It's beautiful!  I like absolutely everything, the colours, & having a hard time picking a favourite!

I love how I sent the book to you, and it's got one of your tea lino prints in it, and I've got the picture with those two hanging on my kitchen wall Cheesy

Thank you everyone!

As soon as I saw the pic under hot new projects I knew it was your's Phizzy!  Love the journal, as I do all of your other work.

It's funny, I never think that I have a pronounced style, but since I hear that quite often, I guess I do! Cheesy

I love the Craftster supply network, as you can see, the book is perfect for my doodling, thank you! Grin
That little cup is one of my favourite stamps. I should carve up some more so I don't use it so often! Cheesy

This is totally beautiful. I've always wanted to do something like this, but I don't think that I have the patience to do an entire book.  Cheesy Yours is breathtaking, though.

I don't think I asked this before: what exactly did you use to get those gorgeous colors? I used watercolor in my last altered book and didn't like how, well, soggy and slightly distorted my pages turned out as a result.  Sad

Thanks!

Some of the pages do bleed through at the edges since it's an old book, but if you choose the next pages colours to incorporate this it doesn't matter too much, and you can incorporate it into the design. Wink I've not experienced soggyness yet though. To stop the warping, it may help to make the other side of the page slighty wet too, a wipe with a damp sponge might do it. I find that helps with normal paper sometimes. Sorry I can't be more help! Undecided

I use two sets of watercolours, a mini travel selection by Windsor & Newton and a brighter selection by Nexus.

I've wanted to make one of these for awhile but never get around to it.
Your pages are really stunning. That's one amazing book!
