Altered Book Page

I was given some old books a few weeks ago, not my sort of books and there were pages falling out so I thought they would be perfect to alter and use in craft projects. For this page I started by covering the pages with gesso, then I used some water colour pastels and shimmer mists. Once all of that was dry I added modeling paste though some stencils and sprayed gain once it was dry. The stamps are from Kanban, Prima and Inkadinkadoo. I coloured in the kanban stamp with Derwent Coloursoft pencils.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
