Other:  wood/tree disc, Archival Jet Black ink, copy paper, .01 Micron Black pen, Neenah Natural cardstock, Staedtler pencils, leather ribbon, picture hangers or ideaology clip rings, 2 small screws, tiny attacher, foam tape, pop dots.

Wood disc is approx. 10.5 x 7 inches.  All images are stamped with Archival Jet Black ink.  Stamp the Birch Trees directly on wood disc and a second time on copy paper for a mask.  You do not need to cut out between the trees.  Mask the tree and stamp foliage portion as needed to fill up the space.  Stamp Small Horse on wood disc.  Die cut a Small Horse from copy paper to use as a mask.  Mask the horse and stamp the Barn.  Stamp a Barn on copy paper and cut out for mask.  Mask the barn and small horse.  Stamp the Mystic Hideaway Mountains across the background.  Keeping all masks in place, randomly stamp the Grasses from the Scenery Builders Set.  Remove masks and if necessary hand draw with a .01 Micron Black pen any lines that need connecting and add a couple small pines between the birch trees to match the mountains.  Color images with pencils, leaving some natural wood showing in the grass field.  Color the sky lightly with pencils.  Yellow closest to mountains, then pink, then blue at top.   Stamp Large Horse 3 times on Neenah Natural (cream) cardstock and die cut all horses out.  Color with pencils.  Before attaching horses, secure picture hangers on back and attach leather ribbon to hang the plaque.  I used 2 bronze colored ideaology clip rings screwed in place with phillips head  screws and then ran the leather ribbon through the rings and secured with multiple staples with a TH Tiny Attacher.  You can then glue the ends of the ribbon in place with Glossy Accents.  When GA is dry, flip project  front side up and attach horses using various thickness of foam tape and pop dots to give an illusion of depth.
