Dress Form Map

The Documented Life Project challenge for last week was use a map in your journal.  It took me a while to come up with something different.

I cut my map using the Tim Holtz Dress Form Die. Memphis is my hometown so I thought it was appropriate to use that part of the map for the dress form.  I love the buttons and spools that are part of that die so I added those to my page.

The background is an actual pattern from a children's pattern.  The scissors and thimble are stamped images from The Angel Company that I embossed and cut out.  I used blue craft paint around the edge to give everything a distressed look.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog!!
