Art Journal Journey - Vintage

 I am hosting Art Journal Journey for this month with vintage as my theme. It's a while since I used my vintage type stamps so I have enjoyed doing these. This page started off with me writing all over the background and then covering it with a light coat of gesso. I then added some collage. I used an old envelope and made a little journal out of scraps of paper to put inside.  Muslin scrap was adhered to the front for some texture. I made a card with the wren on the front and put a couple of quotes inside. A leaf from the garden and a gelli print of one were added with a small pocket with two found feathers inside. I added the painted tree to connect it with the leaves and birds.

Double A4 page layout.
The inside of the card with the quotes.
The small journal inside the envelope.

This set of tags are hiding under the envelope which is hinged on the left.
