Our theme today on "An Attitude of Gratitude" is "My Neighbouhood", and the technique to use a map. I went straight to my old map book only to find I had already cut out our area for my Altered Book! So I decided to paint my own.
It is rather stylised but I think you'll get the gist; Grey > Roads, Clay > Built-up Areas and Green > Woods and Fields. I managed to get a couple of cheap stencils today in town (no craft shops sadly) so have used them for the ivy and swirls. A few diecuts and a mask of a compass to finish off.
Have to say I was rather inspired by Amanda's page of her walk to her Grandma's house.
I love it. If you have a stationers nearby, plastic alphabet and number stencils are always useful.
Hi BJ, excellent job on your map and your handwriting is so neat too! Love the colour combinations. Crafty hugs, Anne x
Oh I LOVE that you drew your own map! Wonderful!!!
