Doodle map

Thought I would share a little project with you! This morning i was going through some paper i had stashed and found a few sheets of ingress paper,Ive never tried it with watercolors and thought what the heck lets give it a whirl! I tore down a sheet into small pieces and splashed watercolors on and let the color flow where it wanted and let it dry
before








I came back a little bit later and took a long look and thought that it kinda looked like a map..hmmm
What if I outlined all the little shapes of color?  I grabbed my favorite pen and just went with it... I did not really think about it to much I just started at one corner and doodled away and sipped my coffee :)
Detail









This was allot of fun i think ill have to do some more but bigger! and include some hand stitching to add texture.You can use whatever colors that appeal to you and doodle what you see I think that's the best part of it everyone see's something different..have fun :)
