Hi everyone. Happy middle of the week. And Happy middle of the month too. I do love September weather and wish it would last. Although they do say rain and more humidity today, the last few days have been perfect. It's been back to walking and some fun outdoor projects for me.

Today I have a vintage page for Wendy's challenge at Art Journal Journey. I am also linking up to More Mixed Media with another page as there challenge is Anything Goes with Optional Brown.
My journal page began with some watercolor paper that I used to clean up some brown paint on. I then added 2 old dictionary pages that have a vintage aged yellow effect. Those pages may be a bit brittle for everyday use, but they do work perfect for Wendy's challenge at AJJ. I used some modeling paste and stencil around some of the edges, and once that dried I took a yellow and also a brown ink pad to lightly color my texture design. Now my brown ink pad looks slightly shredded as the modeling paste dried with lots of rough bits. Note to myself, sand the dried texture paste a bit next time before rubbing an ink pad on it.
I then cut out the vintage image from an old children's book I have. I framed it on my page with some bronze foiled paper trim, 3 crepe paper leaves. Finally I added the metal clock and a stamped quote block.
There you have it.
Thanks so much for visiting!
