Map-making Quandaries

It's easier to dream about creating maps than it is to actually build them--so many options!

I've recently learned that I can create maps using GIMP shareware, so I've been dabbling with possibilities here:
Love the clear colors and outlines!

A basic parchment-hued landmass surrounded by aquamarine seas. I love this color mix and the way the program defined the continent's edges. But I'd have to draw my own mountains, roads, boundaries, rivers, and landmarks.

I also reloaded my old CC3 software and upgraded it for a modest fee. and by the end of the day, had only this to show. 
Less is More ...

I'm returning to the drawing boards tomorrow--watch for revisions! Aaaand ... back to the beginning! :)
