This week I was inspired by the Xyron board on Pinterest
Not Xyron But Should be- so I thought I would TACKLE this
Map Lampshade project....
After a few fails (on my part) I finally got it! LOL
First of all I could not find a vintage map anywhere and trust me I looked!
So I decided to distress my own map using Spritz in brown and a light
dusting of gold spray paint because I wanted it shimmery too.
After it dried I crinkled it a bit because I wanted an artsy textured feel.
Then I cut it into 9" strips.
I ran the strips through my Xyron 9" Creative Station
(which by the way EVERY home needs one!)
I then peeled the clear plastic adhesive film off and tore the
map into strips and applied. I did it in strips because #1 I could not find a straight
lampshade. #2 I wanted more texture on the shade.
I actually love the textured result- very artsy! :)
What do you think??
It literally took me an hour when I got it all figured out.
Happy Friday friends~
