Wednesday Wonder – Painted Globe Project

Wednesday Wonder – Painted Globe Project

Today I wanted to share a fantastic project by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer!

New life for an old globe

You know how fond I am of taking found items and sprucing them up! Julie took an old globe she found at a thrift store and used some paint and vinyl cutouts to create a really great update to the globe. In fact, the direction she took this project will allow this globe to be used no matter how or when boundaries are redrawn for country borders, or what areas are renamed. She uses some great step-by-step photos so you can follow her project.

As you can see, it’s another way to use an electronic cutter for an artsy project. Using the letters for both a masking technique, as well as adding phrases, is such a great use of her machine and her creativity! Julie uses a Brother ScanNCut machine, but you can use your Cricut or Silhouette!

I hope you enjoy the project as much as I did! Hop on over and take a peek at her globe project now!

Cheers to YOUR Artful Adventures!
