Art Journal Journey - MAPS

I have to share a spread in one of my Altered Books today that I created with some scraps of a map from my area

.... my friend and neighbour Maria inspired me with her new front garden decoration.

I made some photos as I created the pages - so if you are interested you can see a bit of the progress

join us at

Art Journal Journey

I will also link to the weekly   PPF  !
