1000 steps from home

Along with some friends, I have joined an international competition  producing lay outs.  So the next couple of weeks should be fun.  
  Starting with two pieces of watercolor paper,  paint with yellow and orange water color the upper part of the paper, using bold brush strokes.  Next up,  using a combination of gel medium, glass bead gel and rust colored paint,  mix well and apply to paper over a brick mask.  Using a loaded paint brush,  flick on water color paper using water and watercolors.
  Stamp on paper.
  Pile on die cuts from Webster's papers,  layer them on.  Trim pictures if necessary.  Use green paper to provide base for all the pictures.  Glue on wooden chipboard embellishments.  I have also added some acrylic paint to the chipboard tree and birds.  Add on  prima Flowers.  I have also added some twine on a tag.  Write Journalling on tag: " I live in a paradise called the Philippines. We have wide and open roads, shady trees.  Flowering plants all year through.  Even our lamp posts are pretty.  This is paradise within 1000 steps from home."   Hide tag beneath topmost left picture.
