Inspiration Avenue: Faded



This week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue has the theme "Faded." Inspired by the pretty examples on their blog (see left sidebar for link), I created this softly faded travel-themed piece, evoking memories of long-ago adventures. The background map is a map of London, which happens to be my maiden name. Hello to any Londons reading this!

This has a lovely vintage touch, and the London map is a great background. I can see Fleetstreet and Temple. I just have been there last year and loved it.
Great collage and wonderful entry for that subject.

This is lovely. It really fits the "faded" in more than one aspect.

Great vintage looking collage. It would make a lovely card or addition to a scrapbook page.
