Does the thickness of the paper make a difference Jennie?

Very much so Mickie.  Try with some old dictionary or book paper first.  It is much more pliable when wet.  Using light cardstock is more difficult and grungepaper probably the worst.

Have been trying different papers and, yes, the finer paper is best to begin with.  Still get one nice one to two not too good ones Embarassed  Will just have to persevere.  

It occurs to me that I have a few Christmas Dinners to go to and there's bound to be banqueting roll to vandalise Laughing

Beginning to wonder why I bought Grungepaper.  Anyone do anthing wonderful with it?

I find that grungepaper doesn't take colour too easily.  You have to really go for it, or perhaps I am using the wrong inks.  I tend to use DI.

I usually use acrylic paint on my grungepaper it seems to work the best
It is about the only time I use my dabbers.

I have now finished the course with Donna.  We did image transfer for the last page (which amazingly for the first time worked - so many trials have failed!) and we did the cover, which was just about everything on the one page!

It's a thick book!!!!

It looks really great Jennie, and you managed to keep up. Are the covers made from corrugated card?

Yes Vonny, it was corrugated card (Zutter) we used for the covers.  Tore a bit off and then painted it.  A bit messy for me, but good to give it a go.
