Art Venture Deco page

I received Margaret Rogers' deco book from Pea. My first attempts were a disaster and so the only thing left to do was cover everything up with paint. I LOVE the way these backgrounds turned out!! Then I stamped the 'eye' image directly onto the painted background, but it wasn't bold enough so I stamped it on matching vellum...and much better!
Here is the back of the page for Margaret's book. I loved the color, but it needed more interest than just the main image so I stamped with crimson copper brilliance using a texture stamp. Then I added the little swirls and the 'art' stamp. I wish I wouldn't have stamped with the 'art' stamp; I think it takes away from the other image.
