I used papers by Echo Park and plain cardstock. The layout shows the drive into our estate to our house and though it into the garden. All under 1000 steps from the house.
My journalling on the front of the layout says:
HOME is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other. It is the place of confidence. It is the place where we tear off that mask of guarded and suspicious coldness which the world forces us to wear in self-defense, and where we pour out the unreserved communications of full and confiding hearts. It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule.

I used my Tim Holtz Sun Rays stencil with Wild Honey Distress Inks. The birds is also a stencil that I used together with black paint. The fence was coloured with Wild Honey Distress Stain and then I used a coloured and textured paste here and there to distress it. The compass coin shows the direction of the house too. I stamped the word delight and added the flowers.
The birdbath is a replica of the one I have in my garden and was given the same treatment as the fence. The quote there was cut from the paper. More stamping at the top of the layout and some ink splashes.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
