When was the last time you counted your blessings?

I'm on a roll here! Trying to finish te last pages in my Round Robin journal so I can pimp the cover! That would be my 2nd journal ever to get finished. The page was inspired by France Papillon, a great mixed media artist. I used the lyrics of the Crosby, Stilss, Nash & Young song 'Our House'. Slightly altered the text though, since we don't have cats but two dogs it goes: 'with two dogs in the yard....'!
The houses were made with Prima resist papers, coloured with Distress Stains and Dylusions. Those work just great together! I drew the doors and windows on with a permanent marker and made the windows yellow with a Pitt Pen.
On my T.H. tissuepaper background I smeared some golden en metallic green paints as well as some white gesso.
Hope you like it, have a great Sunday, hugs Frea
