I drew a treasure map using Illustrator and provided circles for the key locations for the PSA Essentials stamp icons. I used Touch Twin Markers to bring my illustration to life.
You can download the FREE picture file and print so you can create your very own treasure map. This project is great for Pirate birthday party and a great pretend outdoor/indoor activity for the older kids.
I planned out what I wanted to accomplish before coloring my map. Lined up my markers according to what I want to color first. Then I started with the land and water and worked my way through the different details of the map.
I did a free-hand stripe coloring on the little boy's shirt. The fine tip really helped define the straight lines.
After coloring all the elements. I stamped PSA Essentials icons to my map. I used a variety of stamp sets for this project. I used Haunted Shack, Anchor's Aweigh, Rocket and Archive Text. It's such a fun project. If you're planning to use it for a treasure dig adventure for a pirate party you can finish one copy and use a color copier to produce extra copies for the other kids participating.
I just love this little guy.
Hope you enjoyed this project. Your next stop is Jeanne Streiff from Inky Paws...thanks again for stopping by and don't forget to follow PSA Essentials and Touch Twin Markers blogs.
