Watching ink dry

Making this little book (as yet untitled) involves spraying the pages - one by one - with water, then touching the water droplets with ink. Some spread into each other, others have just about dried before you get to them. Then the ink has to be left to dry, and this can take hours (using a hair dryer risks spreading the ink). So I've been doing a page every morning, and have nearly come to the end of the book.
 Some previous pages -
The idea started out as "flocks of birds, swarms of insects" but at the moment it's feeling more like microbes. The pages need something adding to them - words? stitches?
