I am happy to say that I have my internet back, which is just great. I feel back in touch now!
I was pleased to see this morning that I won the Craftroom challenge 'Vintage Stamping' .
Today I am sharing a piece I will be using as cover on a journal I have started to make. The background has been made from cardboard, partly peeled and painted with gesso. For the matting I used various paper scraps with script and a piece of cream coloured jute. The right side has been embossed by stamping into molten Utee. The focal image has been stamped onto a piece of handwritten paper from 1840. The page is part of a study book where the owner wrote his notes on the sides between the texts, with a very fine handwriting. The book is unfortunately disintegrating, and I am using the parts that haven't fallen apart in my work. I stamped over the writing with an image of Leda (Lost Coast designs), stamped with Adirondack espresso. I added some lace, string, and 2 of my home-made paper beads as embellishments.

Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
