For Art Journal Journey, maps, I have another hybrid page. The background has been painted, dripped and glittered. The beautiful heart map is a free image which you can find here.
I added the text and the 'Shalom', which was cut from the piece of painted tyvek I showed on Friday.
Today was sunny/cloudy/windy, but stayed dry. Tomorrow we have been threatened with heavy rain again. The level of the Rhine has dropped a little, so I'm hoping it will keep going down.
I love this corner of the square by the Basilica:

This always reminds me of my great Auntie Fanny. She once took me on a coach ride to a friend of hers who lived 'in the country'. I was very impatient, and kept asking when we would be out of London and in 'the country'. Then I asked her how we would recognize 'the country'. She told me it would be green, so I
answered that parks were green, too. Then she said, 'In the country they have haystacks'. And sure enough, we saw some haystacks in a field and then we arrived at our destination!
There are always lots of boats chugging up and down the Rhine:
This name means 'With God's help', which is also the motto of Monaco.
And I was always thought Ben Nevis was in Scotland! It is in the Grampian Mountains, and is the highest peak in Great Britain. I spent some time there when I was at school, taking part in an award challenge from the Duke of Edinburgh. Nice to see the mountain coming to me this time.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
