I got this idea after looking up office décor ideas on Pinterest. I knew I wanted a world map, but came into the same problem as with the Yosemite picture: not within the budget. So I did the same thing as I did with that picture, I made my own. I followed the same steps as with the other one, but after I modpodge the whole picture I painted it. I got metallic blue, black and gold paints from the craft store and pulled out all of my paint brushes. I started with the gold and slowly worked my way around the edges and filling in the contanets. I had to do several layers of gold paint to get the texture I wanted, I wanted it to look just like gold leaf. Once the gold was finished I started with the oceans. I mixed white and black to create different shades of blues and repeated the process, starting with the edges and filling in. I couldn’t be more excited how these pictures came out and they look so great on my cabinets!
