After making the decision to alter my Little Golden Book called "Christmas Carols", I knew I wanted to let the gorgeous illustrations in the book be the centre of it all. So with that in mind, I have decided to keep any pages that I add fairly uncluttered so as not to distract from the original book pages. The plan is to use mainly plain cardstock for the base of the added pages and I've found a few different patterned papers that I think will fit in well to embellish with. I'm not planning on adding any Christmas themed patterned paper to the book at all although I did pop one piece I had in my stash into my supplies box. (Just in case I change my mind).
I'm still undecided as to whether I want to "age" anything that I add with inks etc or to keep it all bright and new looking.......having a mix of a "worn" with "fresh and new" appeals to me at the moment. We'll see how I go..........clean and simple is not something I'm good at but I am going to try. So at this stage, I have only gathered some basic supplies to start this year's December Daily. I'm thinking the less I have in the supplies box the easier it might be to keep it simple. The more I put into the box the more I will want to keep adding to the pages lol.
This is what I have ready to go and as you can see here, the pages in the little book are just delightful so I really hope I can stick to the plan of letting them still shine.
Roll on December so that I can give my Little Golden Book a "new life".
In the meantime, we'd love you to share all your process and December Dailys with us
We'd love to see them!
