World Traveler - Simon Monday Challenge

What a great theme today on Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge


As always there is a $50 voucher to spend in Simon Says Stamp Store!

I can't wait to see your creations which could be everything: your travel memories, journyes, places, albums, etc. 
I've been planning to make a world map canvas for some time and this theme was just perfect so I did it :-)

Here are some first steps I did to make this canvas... 
After that I completely forgot to make pictures of another steps :-) 
That's the best proof it involved me absolutely...

1. Take kid's school atlas and draw the map with a watercolor pencil.

2. Fill the continents with Distress Inks mixed with water.

3. Splash the background with colorful Dylusions Sprays.
(since I wasn't too happy with the background which seemed too colorful so I covered it with a layer of white gesso)

Then I was just stamping with Distress Hickory Smoke and some of the details with Archival Black Jet as well. I used a Mini Tiny Circles stencil with Distress Vintage Photo Ink

I love rub-ons so I put a biggest one I have as a focal point of my canvas. 
There are other smaller sentiments on every continent and some random places.
The Idea-ology metal sentiment finishes the title of my project. 

I really like and use often the circles made with a top of a bottle, jar etc.

Finally I gave some touch of Prima Shine On Rub On Foil (thanks Sandra!)

I hope my canvas inspires you to make your own project and share it with us!
