12 Days of Christmas --Day 9

Before I share Day 9, let me share a few things you have linked up to the 12 Days of Christmas party:
Super stockings from Blue Clear Sky
Sweet pallet trees from A Vintage Fairy
Fun Merry and Bright sentiment from Rustic ReDiscovered

And now...on the 9th day of Christmas Beyond the Picket Fence gave me, a sign of peace.
This started life as some type of a gameboard.  You could use a tray or a plate.
I added some Annie Sloan chalk paint in a rough all over texture.  I used dark wax over the paint.
Then looking at a cartoon drawing of the earth I freehand painted the continents and added the Peace on Earth.  I wanted a little sparkle so I used a light, watered down coat of modge podge and then some glitter.
A simple way to share an important message,  I think this may just be at home here in my kitchen.
