This is the second book I dyed, in tandem with "Gulliver's Travels" - the book here:

The cover did not "take" the dye.

This is a super cheap, from-the-$1.25-store composition book. I prefer it because the pages are blank - no lines or grids. I had switched the dye from the bucket to a gallon-sized zipper bag and I really sloshed the book and dye around.

So I got some cool patterns on some of the pages:

But some pages got almost no dye, just random specks and dots:

And here I have started altering the pages, mainly these are the reverse of stencils I'm using on other art journal pages:

Because of the green and brown color scheme, I'm thinking this may turn into a fairy tale or woodland themed journal but I have so many alphabet stencils and I can't stop myself from using them, this may turn out to be something else completely.

I'm still on the hunt for bright fuchsia dye and the perfect book. I picked up a Dutch poetry hardback at the library book sale this past weekend but it's very old and brittle so I may have to fins a more contemporary book.

Thanks again for looking.
