    Really like how you added the line drawkings. I am experimenting with CC3 myself. What font did you use? I still need to figure out how to add line drawings like that. Nice :-)

    I put the drawings in with PhotoPaint, but you could do it with Gimp (free) just as easily. Just put the scan above the map and set the blend mode to multiply. All of the white pixels will vanish, and the dark pixels will merge into the image nicely. Then you can adjust the size, position and opacity (or transparency, I don't know which Gimp uses) to taste.

    It took me a little bit to track down where I'd mentioned the font in the WIP thread. It's called Dauphin. I think it was packaged with my edition of PhotoPaint.
    If you're interested, here's the Work in Progress thread:
    It's got lots of good advice in it from the people who helped me through the process of learning CC3.
