TGIF Challenge - Houses

The house shape conjures up images of warmth, love, safety, solace...a place of one's own. It is easy to see what it figures prominently in artwork. This is a journal page that I created for an alphabetica round robin project. It actually is for my own book with the theme of "Adjectives". I chose to focus on "A is for Adore". This is my entry for this week's TGIF challenge.
