More Dots Wanted
One of our habits is to take a long walk on our first day in a new place - and get lost. Of course we don't plan to get lost but it has happened so many times it is expected. Oh, that would make a good page, too.
I put dots on this map with a permanent marker and that inspired the title.
The map is created using Crafter's Workshop Mini US stencil and several different craft paints. I matched the paint to October Afternoon's Travel Girl papers. I match things close but not perfectly. I think mixing paint is fun. I love seeing what you can get. This time I used a light tan rather than white to lighten colors and it dulled them just enough to match the papers closely.
Some Washi and a few stickers from the collection finish it off.
Here's the video on YouTube:
And here's the sketch:

Awesome layout, Lisa! Love the stenciled map and the whole idea behind the layout. I hope this coming year brings you more travel destinations to add on to the map. :)ReplyDelete
Lisa, the vibrancy of your map really speaks of exploring! I also did a travel themed layout today, but it was just down the street :-)ReplyDelete
