Here is my take
I covered the background paper in gesso to soften the colour. Then l used a mask with paste to make the circles, then added ink over the top. After that l added hand stitching to the outside of the circles and machine stitching to the edges of the layout. I have distressed all of the papers, made a couple of paper rosettes and added some hand journalling.
Thanks for looking.
