and God saw that it was good

This is a 12 x 12 scrapbook page for the latest Salt Challenge - "and God saw that it was good". The photo doesn't give an entirely realistic impression of the colours, but you get the idea. I drew the picture in watercolour pencils and went over with a wet brush. The sun is a shape from a Papermania pastel shapes set, I went over it again with a darker yellow pencil and 'weathered' it with an emery board. I used E-Z walnut ink around the edges and added flower sequins to the foreground.

Background papers are from a Scrap Pad by DCWV, lettering is from an alphabet book from HOTP - except 'good' which I cut out using computer font as template, and smudging it with a bit of walnut ink. I used the fine tip of a Whispers dark brown brush marker to write the verse. I probably spent longer on this than most of the challenges because of all the cutting out involved, and creating the picture. Would love to know what you think.
