BIA book - another page

I've done another page for my BIA book (mentioned in a previous post).  I did have one which I'd inked and stuck part of a page from a book onto it, but have temporarily mislaid it :-/  I've spent quite a few hours gardening today but managed to do the page this morning.  I've used DIs then sprayed over a stencil with a homemade mica powder spray and did a bit of stamping.  I used Grungepaper for the heart then decided to triple emboss it and stamp into it - I mention this 'cos I could've used card for the heart.  I did some stitching down the side using my sewing machine so decided to stitch the heart on.  The pieces of shell are from an old necklace.  I added a piece of sinamay - used in hat making -  and a few beads.  For info: sinamay can be wetted (?) and shaped and left to dry :)
