This is the latest progress on the second board book shown yesterday.

A couple of you were wondering how I had prepared the pages before adding the gesso. I didn't do a thing to them, just started slathering it on. After I was about half-way into each book with gesso, I did start having inner conversations with myself and wondered if I should have scuffed up the pages just a bit before gessoing. So at this point I'm considering this an experiment. If anyone out there has done this before, please tell how you went about preparing your board book pages, scuff or no scuff.
