I'm slowly making my way through the alphabet, trying out various collage techniques. S is made from coloured transparent paper covered with gesso and molding compound. Buckled like crazy even though I held it down on four edges with double sided tape. Into press and told to behave! Windows drawn in pen and cut out so they open. Behind windows small pieces of fancy paper glued in and then the whole thing glued onto the book page. I am tempted to put figures in the windows, shutters and curtains on the windows but I must get on and start the next one. Left hand side has the windows shut and on the right hand side some are open.

Turned out better than I thought it would, quite tactile looking when in the hand. Thanks for all the positive comments.
