The pages themselves are rather thin paper (should have bought one with watercolour pages!) so I am trying to use 'dry' medium instead of more paint. Here I spread some gesso with a palette knife (still a bit wet though) then embedded some painted tyvek pieces into it. I then added 'dry' paint to the gesso when it was dry, and on the red side some oil pastels. On the gold side I added some markal.
