The Anniversary Book 4

I've added some stamping with slightly diluted white paint. This really lightens up the piece. It's a handmade stamped I created from fun foam, kinda cool. I also added a harlequin stamp on the left area of the script paper. I punched small circles of book text and added them to the top. I'm thinking I'd like to do some doodling on the white stamp at some point, but not sure.

Not nearly finished, but it's definitely taking on the romantic theme.

I love what the white has done for the book cover. It definitely has lightened it but also just given it a lift in general. Even the book print dots are great and make a connection with the print down in the bottom-right. I can't wait to see what happens next.
