Vintage Art Journal Page with Collage Background

I made a vintage art journal spread with a collage on the background. I worked in the Kunst & Papier watercolor journal. The papers are handmade and also from a design paper pad. The one with the flowers in an old book page I painted myself with watercolors. As a focal image I added one of the Grungy Butterflies stamps. Click on more to watch a quick video.
