Altered map book journal page

I bought a large street index of the Virginia Beach area that has at least 100 pages. I’ve been working through the book from the beginning making art journal entries. This page was colored with Pelikan Gouache paints (a 24 color set I have), permanent marker and a white gel pen, Pentel Sunburst, which I like very much. The original lines on the map reminded me of a fish shape and that informed the subject matter of the page. Small memories of my time as a child on the Chesapeake Bay beaches are documented. Seashells and seahorse images are rubber stamps.
