Back in April, I wrote a post about a weathered and worn vintage globe that I rescued from Goodwill. With plans of giving it a facelift, I decided to get crafty this week and perform its transformation.
Like my globe, a 1950s primer called We Are Neighbors had seen better days. So I had no problem with taking the book apart to use its vintage illustrations in my project. I particularly liked the images of neighbors near a picket fence and all the activity that went on around it.
I carefully cut out my favorite images with an X-acto knife. Then I dug out a jar of Mod Podge from my supply closet and the fun began — decoupaging the paper ephemera so it circled the globe in an interesting fashion.
I added words here and there to drive home the message that, around the world, we are all neighbors sharing the same home — dear old Mother Earth.
I'm so pleased with my altered art globe. How do you like it?
I hope you have a nice weekend. Looks like we're in for some sun here — at last!
