Page for Elena's Round Robin Journal

 I have Elena's Round Robin Journal in the  Kindred Souls Art Group. Her theme is Inspirational Quotes/Shabby Chic look!. Elena had used background papers and also stenciled and stamped on many of the pages in her book. I choose a fairly plain page on one side with flowers stenciled on the back for my page.
For the front I used an old embroidered hankercheif. Stamped a saying with blue StazOn ink. Added some large lace on the top and added a "pearl". Hand stitched a vintage image with some gold glitter accents. Sewed some  yellow rose beads to the embroidered flowers and a white rose bead to the corner of the vintage image. Sewed some crocheted lace to the edges of the page and sewed on some "pearls" to the front and back of this lace.
 On the back, I didn't want to cover the stenciled flowers that were already done. Stamped a saying with black Archival ink on another vintage image added to the page with Washi tape. On the side added another quote with a Sakura gel glitter pen.
