Maps can add great detail and interest to your mixed media art. I love collecting them, and I kind of forgot about them, because they are tucked away, but not my atlas books, which I also have a small obsession with.
This top one is my favorite, and it's the same one that's underneath, which is just about used up. So I was happy to find it again at a thrift store last year for 10 cents!--just 10 cents!!
My first project --
a map box--love what the map alone did for this box
I call this my Home Sweet Home assemblage
And here's a before shot of the next one--still thinking about maps--this time with a globe--
really happy with her!
and one more--
another map box
Maps are so inexpensive--new and old ones that you can find in abundance at any flea market--if you've never used them--try them--they do half the work for you!
