Map Art

One of my online scrappy friends shared a large piece of artwork like this on her Instagram feed and I knew that I was inspired to make one for my in-laws for Christmas. In the end they'll get it after because Dala liked it so much that we're going to offer it as a class at Soul Sentiments after the new year. 

The map is a Silhouette Studio file and I used Jillibean Soup Sightseeing Stew. Some of the "A" sides of the papers were a little iffy for this project, but those "B" sides were perfect, almost at the same scale as a 6x6 pad and just the right colors. 

Yes, those are real book pages. Torn from a paperback that was falling apart and not worth repairing, so they got a new life, decoupaged under the map. 

Have you ever made something as a gift for someone and had to wait to gift it for a silly reason like that?


  1. Jessica, that is absolutely gorgeous!! Love your use of old book pages and the papers you used on the map are perfect. Pinning!!

  2. Not silly at all. This is such a touching gift. They will love it. I'm sure it will be a great class too. So adorable.


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
