I wasn't sure about the Dorland's Wax, so I just rubbed it on and rubbed it off. Hopefully that's enough to keep the pages from sticking together.  It's the first I've ever used it.

I scanned my book, so here it is:








And then here is an alternate view of pages 2-3 so you get a better sense of how they are:

Wow, MunLtStmpr , your cover is gorgeous! I'm going to go peek at the rest of your pages on Flickr. Smiley

MadMel, I love your interpretation of your theme and how you created an art piece out of your sketchbook. Great job!

As for me... I'm finished! I ended up with 45 spreads, although the last two are definitely cheat spreads. My last story page had started to tear out because of the darn perforations, so I had to tape the back of the seem and then reinforce it by gluing it to the next page. Then I decided to add an 'appendix' of phobias I drew on for my stories and a permanent artist bio with my mugshot on the last few pages... after gluing them to each other so the pen wouldn't bleed through of course.  Roll Eyes

I'm going to go scan and upload them now and then drop it off at the post office in the next town in the morning. I'm actually sort of sad to see it go, but happy to be done with it! Grin I'll share some photos tomorrow. Smiley

TheMadMel: I LOVE that!

I got some more pages done!

Pirates!


Umm... I did this one at like 2 in the morning... as you might have guessed


It's hard to tell, but the left page says things like "Evil witch" and "Crystal ball" And the right says "Would you like to know your future?"


Scary stories!


Sorry for the glare. It says "The Universe is made of Stories, not of Atoms."

Just pumped out another one! Yeah, the background is plain, but the paper is SO shiny I figured I would just let it be.

MunLtStmpr - I love your cover!

TheMadMel - I really like your book - it turned out fantastic!

nicole - I really like the crystal ball page!

I have done a few more pages. I will get some pictures up probably tomorrow. I am also hoping to send tomorrow, so I should probably get back to my last couple of pages!

So I think I might be kind of a bad person (But in a way not really since I procrastinated for months and months and months)

I knew I needed to work on my sketchbook, but when I got home, I'd been so tired because I hadn't slept much lately because my insomnia had been kicking back in.... Well... I decided that since the deadline was extended and I was so exhausted.... I ate dinner and then took a nap for a few hours >_<;;;

I'm going to use Sat/Sun/Mon for sketchbook time. Smiley

I was frantically colouring-in in my pyjamas this morning, then at 11.45am I stuffed the sketchbook into its envelope, threw on some jeans and sprinted down the street to post it before the post office closed at noon.

Then I log on here and see that there has been an extension.  Ach well, its done now, and it feels great to have finished it.  Pics will follow after I've had my lunch and tidied up the floor of the living room, which is covered in paper cuttings, used glue sticks and a messy paint palette.

Phew.
