I SEE WHERE YOU'RE COMING FROM ...

I made this for the Sunday Stamper's challenge, which was to use "golden brown". It looks a bit more orange in the picture, but it is (sort of) that colour - I messed around with Distress inks on watercolour paper until I thought I'd got it right.

Now I did mention yesterday that I was in a slightly off the wall mood didn't I? Well this is the evidence ..... I do actually know what I meant but now I look at it again, perhaps it's a bit strange. Hey ho, can't win them all.

The background stamp of houses is by Teesha Moore, and so is the strange eye. I added the other houses from an unidentified collage sheet. I was thinking about home and our sense of identity and a sort of play on words around the saying .... as if someone could actually see your home town by the things you said? Yes, well it made sense to me at the time ....
