Welcome to Day 3 of Map Week! Thus far we've looked at maps as backgrounds and maps instead of photos; today we'll take a look at maps as embellishments. Instead of thinking of maps as a feature, today we'll think about using maps as accents. There are lots of terrific pre-made map-print embellishments on the market, from stickers to flair to brads, but today we're going to showcase map embellishments that you can create yourself using map-print patterned paper.
First up is a layout I created by die-cutting a shape from my background cardstock (using my Silhouette) and then backing it with map-print patterned paper:
Diane also created die-cut embellishments, using maps in several different ways. At the top of her layout, Diane included map arrows in her row of arrows. In the center of the layout, Diane backed some of her arrows with map-print patterned paper and also cut one of the circular arrow shapes from map-print patterned paper:
Francine used map-print patterned paper as part of the sunburst and in the banner on her vacation layout:
Lisa (Ottosson) included a fun map heart on her layout:
Happy creating with maps!
