A map of Zaltbommel

I'm doing another Make Art That Sells (MATS) course again and I wanted to share the projects I made with you. I'm a behind in sharing already but let's stay with my chaotic way of working and just start with the project from this week. Somewhere in the middle of the course ;).

This week Lilla asked us to make a map of a village. Most likely the village you lived in but you did have some freedom to choose the place you liked. While I illustrated the village I live in last year I decided to look for another village that would be near us. I choose the first 'touristic' place nearby; Zaltbommel. It's not very big but it has some history so there's enough to use on your map. I illustrated some of the 'golden oldies' that are in this city. 

I started with practicing some lettering and choosing a style for that. Eventually I decided to use an existing font and alter it to make it more 'me', but this are some of my sketches.


After that I started to draw the village on the actual size of the map. I still had some 'empty space' on the bottom so I decided to add some 'famous persons' to the bottom.


And tadaa, this is the final map. I didn't really like the 'fortified treasures' part so I added some 'mispels', these flowers are on the weapon of the city but I have to admit... I can't recall any time I saw them in real life. (Sorry for the ugly copyright but it seems that's still the best way to protect your images...)

Spring time

A new card to share with you today! I received my new Simon Says Stamp kit (couldn't resist the beautiful yellow in this one ;) I don't have many yellow products so it's a real good addition to my collection of supplies) and I made a card with the lovely 'journaling cards' in it. Those cards are already beautiful on it's own so they work great for cards!

I hope you're having some beautiful spring days over there! We're having a lot of rain today... So I could use a little bit of spring colors ;).

I'm adding this card to the Simon Says Stamp spring challenge on Flickr and the everything goes challenge on their website.

More BFG

Last week I already told you about my love for the Roald Dahl series. Today I want to share two more cards with you. I continued with the BFG story but with two different quotes this week :).

BFG card

I don't have a lot of time to share cards this weeks (I'm doing a new MATS course and I've got a new project for church (very exciting, really out of my comfortzone but I'm loving it :). More about that somewhere around Easter). But I still wanted to share this cute BFG card with you guys. I've done more Roald Dahl cards, I love the bright colors and cute images. And... I love the quotes from the books :).

Be still

I've got something to share with you today! Last weekend I worked on my 'documented faith' project and I was behind, a lot... With the documented faith project you'll get a bible verse every week to journal about. I'm not doing it the 'official' way by working in my journal or planner but I'm making little cards with bible verses. So this weekend I made a couple of cards and I shared one on the Documented Faith Facebook group. Everyone was so enthusiastic that I wanted to share the card with you :).
