Greece Map

Greece is next. I went with the same four papers but changed up the card stock in the background. Greece proved difficult in all of the islands that make up the country. My paper version does not have as many islands nor will I say that all islands are exactly to scale. :)

Another Kelly Purkey inspired map using her geotag stamp.

Two more countries to go.

Italy Map

Yesterday I felt it was a good time to get started on the big trip book from the trip in June. A good majority of the trip was spent in Italy on a G Adventures Ultimate Italy tour. It gave us the opportunity to see a bunch of places in Italy as we traveled throughout the country.

In order to document this, I wanted to try my hand at making a Kelly Purkey map layout. I loved the fact that she gave a tutorial on how to do them even! And now with the recent release of her geotag stamp, I thought it would be a fun addition in order to show all the places that we went within the country too. So you can say this is a very Kelly-inspired layout. :)

I was pretty pleased with how it turned out and I hope you agree. I have two more to do for this trip book I think - Greece and Slovenia. Greece will be interesting since it's mostly islands! I am glad that I finally just sat down to create this page. It has a lot of love in it to get it "just so." I even got to try misting..a fun technique!
