|PAGES WITH PAINT|
|PAGES WITH GESSO|
|WOVEN GESSO STRIPS|
One of the issues faced when using book pages for craft projects is that sometimes the actual words on the page are inappropriate. I gave some of the pages a light coating of acrylic paint - a second light coat would have obscured the words sufficiently whilst still retaining the look of text. For the second sample I used gesso, with similar results. The main difference was that the latter was "toothier" and would probably make a better base for stamping etc.
If you're still worrying about the text being too readable, you could always cut your paper into strips and weave it together as shown in the third picture!
