About This Class


Have you seen watercolor world maps and wondered how to create one yourself?

Not that long ago, I was wondering the exact same thing. I wanted to create a world map but really had no idea where to start. It seemed overwhelming.

In this class, I'm going to take you step-by-step through the process of creating a watercolor world map the easy way. I did a lot of research and in the class resources, you'll be able to download a template that will make the entire process so much easier.

By the end of this class, you will have a beautiful watercolor world map that you can either add lettering to or you can frame. You can also scan it and use it digitally for many different projects.

Are you ready for an adventure?

Let's get started.
