Vintage going round in circles.

I don't contribute to A Vintage Journey as often as I would like, but this New Year, armed with good intentions and inspired by wonderful art from the design team, I have made it!

I worked in my trusty "Girls Annual" and began with watery white gesso to partly obscure the writing on the page.
Next, I brushed over the centre with some watery Acrylic ink in Burnt Umber. This is one of fave go to's at the moment.
Then, I selected some stamps from Emma Godfrey, Tracy Scott and Visible Image and stamped them onto printed tissue.
A quick arrangement and some ink splatters to take the eye across the page.
Really pleased with this and entering it into the A Vintage Journey Challenge, Going Round In Circles!
