A journal page….

I have been playing in one of my A5 journals again inspired by a scrap from a magazine of a Victorian lady and Clair Snowden's Journal page where she used different text papers. It was however, the quote from Lin Brown's PA Eclectica ELB29 set that I really wanted to use
I don't even know who the lady is but I think she may be connected to the literary circles of the 19th Century.
I had a background already in my journal - lots of painty/stamped layers. To these layers I repeat stamped the quote from Hot Picks HP1010EZ - 'Poetry the best words in the best order'
I then stamped the stars and circles from Lin's  ELB29 and ELB30 and embossed them using copper EP.
I then found several text papers and stamped some from Lynne Perrelas set LPC004 to add to the page. Finally I added some text to the back of a tag(a retail label) which I stamped before adding the image.

I would like to enter the challenge at Paper Artsy - Topic 21 - Typography,Fonts and Quotes

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

That's a unique challenge, but you certainly met it head on. I kept looking at all the layers and seeing more and more. This is truly lovely and there is certainly a lot of different texts and fonts there!
