Spread 106 – Scavenger Hunt

8 September 2012

Vintage and personal papers, matte medium, acrylic paint, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, matte varnish, Signo white pen, black gel pen, red Sharpie poster pen.

When I was young my older brother would make me elaborate scavenger hunt maps. These maps would send us on adventures on our farm and neighborhood that would take all day long. I look back on this memory fondly of my time with my brother and bonding over these adventures. I had long forgotten this memory until I sat down a few days ago to work on an assignment for part of Orly’s class today. This spread is from that class. How many memories are locked away in my personal maps?

    Not only did you bring back a lovely buried treasure, you also brought back the memory that created it. I’m sure you and your brother had some absolutely lovely times with the maps, as you had making this spread. What a great way to honor buried treasures..
