Altered Book

I had shared a picture of the Cover of the Altered book I am working on recently. Here's one of the pages. I have been having so much fun using the stamps Country Girl and Farm Boy fromOxford Impressions I was inspired from the new book by Ruth Rae.
I Fell in Love With The Farmers Daughters. The Full page.
A close up of some hand stitching.

On Page two I stamped the image on muslin. Layered fabrics stitched and topped with sheer organza.
A close up of the text heart and flowers encased in the organza.
This also fits with the Craft challenge at Gingersnap Creations
Come join in the fun!
