The Bug’s question: How to integrate a map into the background (for traveling photos)?
If you haven’t done so already, read Mode of Operation. We will be using the same technique here.
To find maps for download, just type in “free downloadable maps” in your search engine. Below I will provide links to a few of them.
First things first, open a new file or a template. Place a background paper on it.
Next you will want to re-size your map to the size of your layout and copy it as a new layer. I will be using two maps for this layout. One, an old world map of the Scandinavian countries to pay homage to the type of wedding my son and DIL are having (Viking); the other a street map of the town in which they are being wed.
