This week I hosted Mixed Media Monday, asking that everyone use maps (or map imagery)Ā  in their piece.

I like using maps. I need to find ways to get more maps in fabric form. Maps suggest travel, distance, adventure, new paths and journeys, connecting, so many things! It’s no wonder I like using maps!

Books also allow me to travel, to experience adventure, to take new journeys. They have been a way to experience new places and new ideas since I was a very little girl, and I love my books.

This piece mixes the two images. I’ve created a collaged map background and added a little girl reading in the forefront.

My books can take me anywhere.
