Watercolor Maps

So, we have established that I seriously LOVE Pinterest. As of today, I have 98 boards, and 7,848 pins. Needless to say, I have come across some really cool pins, one of the coolest being a website where you can turn maps into watercolor or black and white drawings! It’s super cool, so I put in some places that I love, downloaded the images, and added a title in Picasa (from Google, it’s free photo-editing software) I hope you check this site out!

Slide3

but most places tend to look a little more like this:
