First, an article in today's paper for your reading pleasure.
One of my favorite maps of Maine is of Mount Desert Island. That's where Acadia National Park is located. I'm slightly obsessed with this map as I have posted about it before here. Today I thought of another way to display it in my home. I printed out a copy of this map on half of an old manilla folder.
Grabbed my lighter
And set it on fire!
After I blew out the flame, it left a nice crispy edge.
I took some liquid gold leaf to the charred edges and with a few other embellishments, I mounted it to a plain black board to use as wall art for my kitchen.
The sea glass is positioned atop the town of Bar Harbor.
And yes, we marked it with a You Are Here "X" . . . just in case!
