Map Obsession • Art Journal Demo


InSearchFullSpreadUristaRI discovered a way to save and work with all those maps I keep and love.

Since I was small, I’ve loved maps…I would pour over an Atlas for hours, dreaming about foreign lands and how immense the world looked to me. It was one big adventure!!

Recently, my love for maps resurfaced and had a great time figuring out how to use them in my journal…here are a few “In progress” images below… Please excuse some of the blurry photos.

All those maps!! All those lines, colors and shapes. Patterns emerge, and retreat…What better use for them than in my journal?

Glued in, a few washes of paint and some ink splatters…. Layering and washes continue below…

When dry, I attached a note for myself and boxed out areas for writing.

And thats it! Antique, modern and personal all at once! Hope this sparks some ideas for you and your journaling process.

Happy creating!
