Hope you are all well and fit.
Today I have another piece as a reminder for the challenge at TIOT 'use book paper'. I have been trying to use up a large supply of paper off-cuts in various colours and qualities, and used some of them in this piece, trying to fit the disparate pieces together. This is made to be a tip-in in an album, and is therefor not stitched on the tip-in side. On the red piece I wiped some gold ink from a stamp I had used, and then added the central image, which is one of my marbled images, matted with 2 other scraps of paper. The 'lace' was cut from some vintage book paper from the 18th century using a Martha Stewart border punch. Then it was all layered and stitched, and the quote added with a gold pen. It is 8 1/2" x 7 1/2". Hope to see lots of you joining in at TIOT. I am also linking to Erika's 'when it's hot' challenge at AJJ. When it's hot is for me a good time to stay home and craft in a cool corner!:
And some photos from my balcony and my walks:

The bunting is still up:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
