If you ever come across a vintage globe for sale that is no longer geographically accurate, don't pass it up. Instead, buy it! Then when you're feeling crafty, use it as the canvas for this worldly art project.
A wonderful old primer, titled We Are Neighbors, provided the images for my latest upcycled globe. But instead of cutting up the actual book, I made color copies of my favorite pages and carefuly cut them out with an X-acto knife.
With a foam brush, I used Mod Podge to coat the globe where the pictures would go.
I made sure that the images were distributed evenly around the world. That way the globe was interesting from every angle.
When all of the pictures were glued on, I applied several top coats of Mod Podge over the entire globe's surface.
I love this altered art globe! Isn't is sweet?
I hope to create more of these earthly art pieces when I find more vintage globes. In the meantime, this one can be found for sale in my booth at the SoNo Market Place.
Have a wonderful weekend!
