House/Home Skinny Book

In the BookArtz group, we're doing skinny book shaped like a house. We're doing what house and home means to us. This is my submission...the little pocket holds 6 tags with words that mean home to me...comfort, security, love, blessings, heritage and family. I seem to always have my family's ancestors in the back of mind and I wanted to try to honor them with a vintage look. The background of this piece is a page from the phone book, aged with glazes and inks. I think it will a lot of fun to see what the other particiapants do with this great theme.

Jo, How beautifully this came together! Has given me an idea. I'm thinking photographs of those that are so dear to me. Well, there's one idea!

Great page, Jo! Of course, I never expect anything less from you. I've got the front of my page designed, it's just trying to decide what to put on the back - and not being home! - that's holding me back now. Marilyn
