More Altered Board Book Pages

Here's a couple more board book pages from a book I'm altering with a group of girls in Brisbane.  At the beginning of the year we agreed to use 12 techniques and I've now done them all.

I'd already scanned a picture of this layout using tea bags and the cuttlebug a little while ago ...



and it now looks like this ...



Here's beeswax and fabric ... every time I open to this double page the smell of beeswax wafts nicely up my nose.



Here's my latest double page with texture paste and transparency.  I'm not quite sure that it's finished yet, I may do some stamping around the words to blend the edges of the transparency in, but am still undecided so the pages will stay like this until I meet with the girls tomorrow.



Enjoy and keep smiling.

Beautiful work Diana. You really can work in so many different styles! Is that a Tim Holtz stamp on the top page? Great work, well done :-)
