I’ve had a handful of state road maps in my car for the last 3+ years, but I’ve never consulted them. It’s probably because I’ve also had a smart phone that entire time, and used GPS instead. But I absolutely love the look of maps, so suddenly I had a whole set of state maps for crafting materials! I decided to make some state-themed artwork.
Even though I’m a Rhode Island gal at heart, I’ve been living in New York for the last 8 years. Adding that to the fact that the New York map was in better shape, I decided to feature the Empire State in my piece.
I used Photoshop to place my state outline and “Home Sweet Home” text in the appropriate size for my frame. I specifically picked a font that was big and bold, and adjusted the spacing to make sure there was ample room between each letter.
