Presenting my newest creation . . . I really love how this one turned out!
Starting with a Cram's Imperial world globe with pastel land masses, I carefully cut out images from a favorite 1940s primer. I then decoupaged the paper ephemera so it encircles the vintage globe in an interesting fashion.
The "We Are Neighbors" theme is conveyed through the oh-so-charming illustrations of friendly children, houses, picket fences and all the activity that goes on in a neighborhood.
My latest artfully up-cycled world globe has just been listed in my Etsy shop. I bet once it finds a new home, it's sure to be a conversation piece.
