Mix It Monthly - another side to my art journal layout - Theme Maps

I did a fun picture of a girl that wants to ride on the Swamp Rabbit Trail and after I made it, I knew that I wanted to put a more detailed explanation on the other side of the layout in my art journal. I used a picture of a model from a fashion magazine and cut her out with dotted paper and put a map of my home town behind her. Then I wrote about my home as many other have done for this challenge. There must be something about those maps that make us think of home. I did lots of journaling and some doodling. I cut out the heart for home and on the same dye, there is a flower so I put that in the girl's hair and I think that helps to tie the two pages together.
Now I feel that this layout is complete!

How clever to have cut out the lady from patterned paper and tie it in with the round map. Both pages are just superb and go together so well.
