Romantic circles

While I had the pinks out the other day I used a page in my Hema journal that I bought in Paris! I can't believe how good this paper is for such a cheap product!
I scraped some gesso roughly over the page before adding some stamping with a couple of Carabelle studio background stamps.I also added some torn washi tape for my figures where I wanted them to stand.
 I also added some script stamping too and quite a few stencilled hearts using paint - I wasn't so happy with the stencilling so bump stencilled with ink.
I used a lid to make some light circles with ink.
Next I stamped the Visible Image sentiment and the watches onto tissue and adhered them with multi medium. 
The figures were added and I went over the lid circles with a pencil which I smudged a little bit. I realised that it looked a bit 'empty' so added some 'LOVE' from part of a JoFy quote.

I would like to enter at:-
