The Journey Begins At Home

Made this mixed media journal page using water paint, texture paste, stamps, markers, and stickers.
The background is done in water paint.  The tree is stenciled on with my homemade texture paste...which I put on pretty thick.  I wanted it to really stick out.  I then used Promarkers and colored it in.  The sentiment & house are Unity stamps set called Begins at Home...and the flowers are also a Unity stamp called Charming Cone Flowers, which I colored in with Promarkers.  The clouds stamps are some that I bought years ago. The butterflies, dog and cat are all stickers.

I am entering this into:
