Altered Board Book Beginnings

I was sad that I had no more Christmas ATCs to make. I wanted to use more of the lovely Wassail papers from Basic Grey and my new colors of Glimmer Mist. I also wanted to get back to trying to alter books and journal. I decided that as this blank board book from Alpha Stamps had exactly 12 pages to it-I would do the 12 Days of Christmas through out the holiday season. I tried tons of techniques on this cover alone. I tried printing with the Glimmer screens-wish you could see that in the photo. I altered the partridge with colored pencils and white pen. I Need some smaller leaves around the partridge's feet-but I have time to find those. It doesn't have to be perfect-it's for me. So I can tweak and fuss with it as long as I want! TFL

This is going to be an amazing project! What is it about pears that draws me instantly. I love everything about them, the smell, shape, and taste are pure heaven.
They are so soft and subtle here, love this Suz, will be eagerly awaiting more.
