Maps are too cute! I’m going to paint my own map, print it, and insert it into our invites. This is a very rough sketch of the map but what I suggest for those who are artistically challenged but still want the painted look, use watercolor pencils!
You draw it out lightly in pencil of what you want, then color it in lightly w/the WC pencils. apply a little but of water at the end of your brush and VOILA! It looks like a cute painting!
I used Derwents’ watercolor pencils which are pretty pricey so just stick w/the cheapo ones- once it’s printed, some of the quality will be lost anyway unless scanned at a high resolution.
I used a thin-point black Sharpie marker to make the letters look real bold.
