I decided I wanted to make a piece of art using a map, however we didn't have many so I decided to check out a local store called "World of Maps". Ooooh exciting I hear you say! I know , I know at least you weren't my poor husband being dragged along on a saturday afternoon date!! Anyway in amongst all the quite expensive maps I found a piece of gift wrap for only $6.95.I loved the colours and thought I could cover a canvas with it for instant art. So my little map came home with me and became a project.
I re-used a canvas from a previous project, Mod Podge, a handy glue to attach the paper and cover it for protection. The map was wide enough to cover the edges of the canvas to create a seamless look.
