An Art Journal Page - "And Then She Goes Home."

Hello Everyone - Today I Am sharing another of my art journal pages with you.  This month Susan Weckesser encouraged her Creative Team over on the My Sweet Earth Blog to see our world with new eyes with a focus on our own backyards and our gardens. Now this resonated with me on such a very deep level as I am spending the first year in our new home, one that we hope to be in until we are ready to move into assisted living (in about 30 years - we Hope!).  So here is the two-page spread I created:
The inspiration for this came from the quote I used which really did say it perfectly for me... 
I have been fortunate to have been able to travel to many wonderful places in our beautiful world, making Art and friends along the way, but at the end of each "journey nto the World" I Always Come Home.
And to me My Home is still the place I love the most in this World!  
Our Front Yard with Cherry Tree in Full Bloom

And the back of the house (I am standing in our vegetable garden)
So Why don't you go out into your own backyard and see what you can see With New Eyes and then come back inside and make your own Art Journal page!
