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
here.
