Altered Book - Another Step - The First Page!

The theme for my book is Christmas Traditions
I decided what pages I wanted to do.
They include:
Ancestor Tribute
Christmas Tree's
Santa Claus
Our traditions
I have 18 pages I am doing. I decided a rough draft of each page set up so I can get started.
I gathered all my supplies.
I used an accordian file and gave a file to each page and put teh stuff that goes with each page in the proper space.
This will be the page that holds all the Santa traditions
First Page I did was a horizontal ripped pocket page.
I took the section had had marked for my second Santa page and ripped 10 pieces (see the lower green) then the next 10 and ripped a little higher (see burgandy) then 10 more pieces ripped higher until I had 5 pockets.
Then I used Elmer's Glue and glued each page together (Use a brush to get it even)
Then I painted each section, let it dry then glued the outside edges to make pockets.
I haven't made the stuff that goes in the pockets yet.
Here is all the stuff gathered for the Santa Intro page.
Here is the finished Santa Page.
Next installment will be finished version of all 4 Santa pages.
Thanks for stopping by!
