I love state love art.
I really want some in my home. Especially since I grew up in Alaska and Alaskans tend to have a lot of state pride and because I want Alaska to be a part of my kids lives. Anyway, I kept thinking about how I wanted to do it. What color to make it. Should I do something fun in the background?
After a while of not being able to really picture what I wanted I came up with this.
What do ya think? I love it. It is totally a different look, but it works well in my house.
I made them on 12X12 canvases that I got for about $4 each. Then I looked up some old maps and then I made the old maps look older in picnik and then I made them look even older by doing the distressed photo transfer thing.
I made one Alaska and I put a heart in the Palmer/ Eagle River area since that is where my family is and where I grew up.
Then I had to make a Utah because that is where my husband grew up, it is where most his family is, and it is where we live.
I can't wait to add them into my family room.
