My Creative Space

I've mostly been working on my Map Project this week. I decided to make a second version - not only was I not completely satisfied with the way the land was tinted in the first version, but I want to keep a map as well.Win-win. So I taped my map up to the window & traced a second one (while standing precariously on a chair - my windows aren't in the best location for substituting as a light box for such a large piece of paper). I shifted a few things & added some more detail. Now I just have to figure out how to add colour to the land. I've also settled on what I'm going to do with the back of my map: I'm going to write out a brief history of the land I'm mapping. I think it'll make everything a bit clearer & more fun! I've started drafting that already - I just have to determine how to fold my map before I write it out formally on the back.
Head on over here for more Creative Spaces!

I started working on a map for the vague fantasy novel I've recently started planning. After like, one pocket notebook page I totally lost interest in it. I can't imagine the time and imagination you put into that one, wow! It turned out really well!

I love maps! I'm sure it takes a lot of patience. Have a good night.
