top - "completelynew friends, great advantage available"
blue fibe tip pen

bottom - "alterations enrich appreciation"

Black biro.

I wanted to have a go at a couple of pages just using one colour. I'm finding it difficult to find text on these preface/introduction pages, it's dry old text at the front of Bibles!! Consequently, I'm not very happy with either of these and also because the text doesn't stand out very well.

Lol, know what you mean about prefaces being boring! I'm going to have similar problems if I ever do anything to the intro page in my book!

I rather like both of these, especially the bottom one - perhaps you could go around the text boxes using a broader nib or a darker pen to help them stand out more? I did that on one of mine when I 'lost' the text and it seemed to work.

But love your attempts at monochrome, well worth trying ;D

hugs, Linda.

Jolly good phrases, so long as you are keeping up with your old friends. I love the look of a huge library with the black page.

I've begun mine, I've just got to remember how to alter the heading on my new blog!

I've been watching this text book and Linda's in awe, I couldn't see how on earth you could find inspiring words to link together. I finally got the hang of this yesterday when slecting text for my 1"squares. All I need is time and a book to work in.

These are both interesting pages - I like the effect of both - if I can ever get myself away from COLOUR lol - I will give it a go

I like texture of the black biro page. I've a couple of blank pages that I intend to write on when the time comes - things like: this book belongs to... if found, please...

or - even considered stamping a word on the page and knitting it into captured text.

Lovely ideas, Kim, might have to "borrow" those when I get back to working on this project! :o) Thanks!
