Get Your Kicks - On Route 66

Recently I finished up a project I've been wanting to try for a long time - a sign celebrating the history of Route 66. I gathered license plates from each of the 8 states that the iconic road travels through, and used them to create a border and then road emblem shape using them all.

I took particular care in cutting the black border arounds the state highway shape, using 1969 Kansas license platers. The letters spelling out ROUTE took quite a bit of time and effort. This piece took forever to make! I also learned many lessons about what you can't do with license plates :)

Now, you can get the canvas print here and here. Hope you love it!
