how to craft… artwork for my walls

Heyhey,

when thinking about how to decorate my walls I had the idea to do something with all the cities I lived in. As some of you might know, there have been quite a few, so this is just the start. And I started at the beginning, which is of course the city I was born in. 😉 I only lived there 3 weeks, but its still the city listed in every passport and document, so it belongs somehow.

I started with the skyline. Some are based on photographs, some I crafted myself. And copied it as big as I needed for my frame.

for this I had some of my prints printed on gift wrap at spoonflower. I cut this a few cm bigger then my frame and also cut my template.

when I decided what look I like I glued the papers together.

and framed it.

I really like this. I cant wait to finish my other cities.
