Heavenly Gardens art journal entry

These past few months landscaping has been foremost on my mind. Plans have been sketched, revised and resketched. So it was timely when Sharon's "Heavenly Gardens" themed art journal arrived.

The journal is filled with beautiful and inspiring entries from the other members of our little Art-Journal-Circle-Swap.

For my entry I imagined Sharon coming over for a  little "garden tour". At first you see the garden from afar in my rather loose interpretation of the city.

When you open the page ("gate") you get into the garden with different design elements that are important in my "heavenly garden" based on Permaculture principles. There are mandala garden beds, rainwater tanks, art, habitat, hardscaping, wood fired oven, chickens and  gift pouch.

The different garden elements open up to reveal some more information on why they are important to me.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself and hope that Sharon will like it.

Until next time...
