Christmas cards on scraps of map

Inspired by the works of Rachel Ann Austin, I realized some Christmas cards drawing on pieces of maps (white cardboard sizes 10x20cm, map scrap size 6x6cm).
To create a matte background I used Acrilyc Gesso applied with a spatula in a thin layer. The map should appear through the layer of plaster. When the plaster is dry I drew simple Christmas subjects with black ink (you can do it even with a black permanent marker), and I painted them with acrylic colors. Happy Christmas to everyone!
