Hello friends, and Happy August!

Since it is the first of the month, I am sharing my DT inspiration project for the August Main challenge at More Than Words with you.

The main challenge this month is as follows:

I had a few different ideas for this challenge, but it all came together when I found this yoga woman in a magazine and a South American postcard with a map on it.

I combined a few old gel prints to make the background.
Then I added another map to the postcard so that it was hidden from the page but could be opened up when needed.

I also added a few collage elements around the postcard.

When the map opens up to reveal…

Since I’m not travelling anywhere as exotic any time soon, I took my art journal on an adventure in the garden, but we can just pretend we are deep in the jungle looking for the path to the beach.

Hope you feel inspired to join in the challenge this month!
