Sunday Stampers - Music, Art Journal Page

Pop over to Hels' for more info on the Sunday Stampers weekly challenge.  The theme this week is 'Music'.  I had thought of doing a canvas - have a roll of canvas and some cheap picture frames from Ikea, which are intended for photos.  But couldn't quite decide what to do so thought I'd do another page in my Art Journal.  Background originally had an inky stencil image with lots of white and I wasn't quite sure how to progress with it so tried Ecoline ink which worked well I think.  I used my flower stencil that I cut last week to add some transfer foil; by painting glue through the stencil; behind the music stamp, but it's not showing up well here.  The music stamp is from Artemio and the 'maids' of course are Stampotique.  In case it's not clear I've included a little piece of the 'Three Little Maids' from The Mikado by Gilbert and Sullivan xx
Edited to hopefully include a slightly better view of the foil :-/

Love this journal page. The Mikado is one of my favorites, and you did a super job of representing it. I especially appreciate your doodles, something I just can't do. They sure make a good border, though.

BTW, Patty will ship to ANYONE, ANYWHERE. She even says so in her post. So, please DO enter her giveaway. I know she would love it if you did. She's a real sweetheart.
