My oldest son's room has a retro car theme, and I have seen several license plate maps that I wanted but didn't like the price tag. So I decided to make my own wall art.
I started by using my Silhouette to cut out three maps: two on cardstock and one on scrapbook paper.
Then, I taped the cardstock map to a piece of foam (I repurposed an old foam play tile) and used my razor blade to cut the mat to fit the outline. I then taped the second cardstock map to the back of the foam.
Next, I adhered the scrapbook paper map to the front with Mod Podge and painted around the edges with Distress crackle paint in Brushed Pewter.
Finally, to highlight the cracks in the crackle paint, give the paper an aged look, and seal the project, I tinted Americana Gloss Varnish with Ranger alcohol ink in Latte. I brushed this over the surface and edges.
Now my son has a cool map that fits in with his car themed room! This could also be done with other shapes and papers to fit different room's decor! Fast, very frugal, and fabulous!
