  • The Inner layer represents you
  • Next, Personal items 3 layers should abstracted from things you like/love [material things such as ipods, sunglasses pets, food, symbols for things are fine!]
  • The Last layer, could be the boarder based on natural things- flowers, grass, stones, forests, mountains.  Again it can be abstracted, or simplified, from the real object
