Pages 51 and 52: I have a lot of triangle shaped magazine page scraps leftover from previous collages. I couldn't throw these scraps away.

Outside front and back covers: The outside cover of my sketchbook looked a bit worse for wear. I decided to adhere with gel medium some altered bleeding tissue papers. The front cover looks like a landscape. Now it's off to mail it to the gallery!
