India themed page

indiaMy brother recently visited India and bought me back a lovely hand carved wooden stamp in the design of a peacock – one of their national symbols. I therefore created an art journal page with an indian theme in mind, and built up the background using torn pieces of paper ripped from yellowing books. I then used a stencil with a striking pattern, Distress Ink in Vintage Photo colour, some purple and green watercolour paints, and the stamp. I also found an image of India in an old travel journey which I stuck down and then painted over with very watery paint. Hope you guys like it!
