A few days ago, my youngest came with some homework, to ask the parents what does 'Homeland' mean to them. This homework was the inspiration for my layout.
I used the fab sketch from Once Upon A... Sketch:
I just LOVE my homeland, I love traveling all around, see all the beautiful sites - from snowy mountains to yellowish desert, seaside and green forests, ancient places and modern cities.
The jouranling lines are from a beautiful Israeli song, and that's what it is in free translation: "I have no other country, even if my country is burning, only Hebrew word penetrates into my veins, into my soul, in a painful body, in a starving heart- here is my home."
On the back of the page I wrote my answers to my youngest: "A homeland for me is first of all "Home", the place where I feel most safe, most comfortable. The place where I was born, where my parents and greatparents fought for freedom. All the beautiful sites, the history of this beloved country. The place where my children were born. The place where I can live freely and be what I am."
I was also inspired by case file # 365-4 at CSI:
My clues to solve the case were:
First of all - I was so inspired by the calla flowers on the inspiration photo, so my main embellishment are the handmade calla flowers.
Scheme - all colors are here.
Evidence - flowers, fabric (the brown felt flower), decorative borders, lace, stamps)
Testimony - the journaling is kind of a love poem to my beloved country, and I added pearls.
Here are some close-ups on the details:
