Hi everyone, Jowilna here today sharing a travel inspired framed art piece, and the Let’s Go Collection was perfect for it.
“I want to make memories all over the world” is a statement I love, and my journey to anywhere starts in Africa so that was my inspiration for this piece.
I combined a cut file done on my Silhouette with my templates, Kaiser mists, Collectables and wooden flourishes to complete the look.
PAPERS: LET’S GO Collection: P2641 Carry On, P2643 Bag Tags

Step 1 – Cut the Africa or World Map out of the Carry On (reverse patterned paper).
Step 2 – Remove from your cutting matt and adhere it onto a sheet of white cardstock. Add some ink splats using your Kaiser mists.
Step 3 – Cut out some tags from the Bag Tag sheet and ink the edges.
Step 4 – Position your template onto the map and apply texture paste. Repeat a second time and leave the paste to dry.
Step 5 – Once the texture paste is dry mist the textured areas using Denim Kaiser mist and heat set using your heat gun.
Step 6 – Use the cover sheet or packaging to die-cut some postage tags using the nesting die.
Step 7 – Stamp images onto the white side of the cut postage stamps using Kaiser ink in Chocolate. Ink the edges to finish them off.
Step 8 – Adhere the tags and postage stamped pieces to the top edge of your map. Use craft glue and foam tape for dimension.
Step 9 – Add collectable, stickers and wooden flourishes to finish off your art work.
Add your finished piece into a frame and hang on your wall as inspiration for your next adventure trip into the world.
