October = House.

This month it was my pleasure to receive the beautifully made art journal belonging to Joan Mannix.  Joan's theme was House.  She included some notes for guidance and it was time to put my thinking cap on.

I discovered a quote I liked and set about working out how I could illustrate it and this is what I did.

I began with a background process I discovered on You Tube and liked. Included scraping paint and using stencils.

 Added some stamping.

My focal point is my cat, cut from a gelli print I had made at some time and some interesting handmade paper for a welcome mat.

Then came my quote....Home is where the cat is.  Mind snap!!  Home not House.  Sorry Joan.

My quote.  

I do hope you like it Joan.
