Let me start by saying I feel like I hit the jackpot being able to play with the Globe Gallery line of products! I’m a huge fan of vintage globes and maps and the concept behind this line is just so fabulously fun and playful! Not only is the concept fun, but the team at American Crafts and 1 Canoe 2 really thought of everything from the golden words to the faux pins and the beautiful copper light strands!
I chose to use the word “adventure” because it happens to be my word for the year and I thought it would be fun to have the globe remind me to embrace “adventure” every day. I wanted the word to really stand out against the hand painted gingham design on the globe, so I decided to tape off some stars and paint them in iridescent glaze. The glaze is from the new Vicki Boutin line and is so fun and simple to use. I then used the gold scripted alphabet stickers from the line to create the rest of the quote. All the globe needed after that were some gorgeous 3-D butterflies as a final touch.
The boys have had just as much fun playing with this globe as their mama has, which means I’ll probably be tracking down a few of the other designs for the boy’s rooms. I hope you’ll as much fun with these products as I have, the globe is a delightful addition to my craft room and really any room for that matter!
