The daily card, week 17

I'm back in DC after an exciting, productive, HOT trip to Mauritania and a wonderful weekend in Texas with my family (especially my amazing aunt :). And the time has come to share the cards I made during my travels.

I pre-decorated two weeks of cards with map gift bags from Paper Source,  and they made a great jumping-off point after long workdays with limited materials. I pretty much just used those and some watercolors and stamps for everything this week. Eventually the maps got a bit boring - and I'll be leaning on them again when I leave for Central America next week - so I branched out a bit and tried to recreate some Mauritanian fabric patterns with watercolor. (May 3 was inspired by this one and there are more to share in the next batch). I loved that idea and will definitely incorporate that into my card-making and art-journaling during future travels - I think it's a great way to capture the look and feel of a place.
