Journal52 - When I Grow Up

Well it's raining yet again so I decided to have a play and do my week 7 piece for the Journal52 challenge.  The prompt this time is When I Grow Up. 

I had no idea what I wanted to be at school but I did like Maps.  I remember this conversation with the Careers Officer at Uni which was obviously before online forms were commonplace.  I said Maps, he thought I said Maths and advised me to do accountancy.   I had to laugh!!   I like Maths but not for a career.  The old maps are beautiful and you can stare at maps for hours and still see something new.

So my page today uses the Map Background stamp from Darkroom Door,  the Vintage Map from Hero Arts and I've inked through a Studio Calico Zigzag mask for some waves.

I'm still dithering whether to bind all the pages together or just use split rings so that's why there's a gap to the left.  Hope you like my piece this week and thanks for looking.


  1. I really like how you represented this challenge, the DD map is beautiful and I love the story of your Careers Officer too. Anne x
