World Map Quote

Summer has started early! With the seasons changing and it getting really nice and warm consistently here in the PNW, I’ve been distracted by hanging out with friends, being outside, and just enjoying the weather! So I apologize for the gap from my last post!

In the same theme as my recent post for the framed inspirational quote, I have been really digging the trend of wordy wall art and home decor.  I find it hard to tell myself no – there needs to be a balance between text, textures, and photos! The idea for this craft came from a friend’s photo on Facebook – it was part of the decoration at their sister’s graduation/going away party. I knew this would be a great gift idea for my brother.  Now that I’ve gifted him this artwork, I can share my process!

Supplies:

  • Map of choice – I used this old-style world map: Rand McNally Classic World Wall Map
  • Paint Pen: Sharpie 63601 Uni-Paint PX-20 Oil-Based Medium Point Marker
  • Straight edge
  • Pencil (we all know Ticonderoga is the best)
  • Graph Paper

I found some glittery letter stickers and knew I could do something easy and fun with them!
