Art Challenge: Hometown Inspiration
Journal Prompt: There is no Place Like Home

The inspiration for this week was "hometown." I couldn't decide what to choose, so I used houses to represent the five major places I've lived.  I had just been creating with products from the Authentique paper collection "Playful" for my LBH Media Team assignment this month, so I used the leftovers to create the page.

The background was painted with a mixture of Dina Wakley heavy-bodied acrylic paints and Dyan Reaveley's new acrylic paints for journals. I first gessoed the pages and then blended the paints with a baby wipe. This creates a nice soft look. I also stamped some texture with paint and Archival inks. The words were computer-generated and I did some doodling with a permanent black pen.

While browsing through Hobby Lobby last week, I came across a framed quote which was perfect for my page title: "Wherever we are together, that is home."

This is one of my very favorite pages EVER! Love the colors, theme, calendar scallops across the top...everything about it is soft and sweet, like "home".
