Gloria's Round Robin Journal Page

I received the last journal for me to work in of the original Round Robin Journals on Kindred Souls Art Group. Gloria choose vintage for the style of her book. I started by adhering  a vintage handkerchief around the page, front and back, with Heat n Bond fusible webbing. Then I re-punched the holes in the page on the left side. Added a decorative lace ribbon around 3 edges. Added a printed pink ribbon near the bottom of the page. Sprayed a large silk flower with a variety of homemade sprays including some Perfect Pearls. Glued a vintage image inside a round metal frame, added some charms to the bottom and attached it to the center of the large flower. Also added two metal flowers with some small crochet doilies and pink floral beads. Added a dragonfly charm to the top one. Added a large metal leaf charm with another type of pink bead to the lower right corner.
 For the back, I cut out two butterflies printed on a transparency sheet, gluing down only the bodies and antenna with diamond glaze, and bent the wings up a bit. I like how the look on the vintage handkerchief.
Gloria's round robin journal is now complete and making it's way home.
