Alphabet Discovery Book

I´ve joined a new group last week to start an Alphabet Discovery Book. Mine is an altered book (edited 1907), and I´ve started with the Letter N spread: I have covered the pages with newspaper, gessoed it, and stamped more newspaper clippings on it. Then I masked the pages with numbers and sprayed on Glimmer Mist in two colours. Then I stamped the nest and the words starting with an n and added the birdy woman. I drew the line she sits on and masked the letter in the upper right corner and dabbed distress inks around it.
