I sent in my DNA, and received a lengthy report on the different nationalities my ancestors bequeathed to me. I have to admit, I was quite surprised by the results.
Then, I wondered what I could creatively do with this information. I love making interesting lettering projects. Over the years I have collected many variations of the alphabet that I have done in my art journals.
The various countries that were listed really intrigued me. Here, is what I ended up with.
From Western Europe, I have ancestors from these countries.
And, from Eastern Europe, I was amazed at the migration of my ancestors.
To complete the picture of my DNA, there is this information, Spanish? Portugal? Wow!!
Then, I decided to pull all of this information into one project. I traced my hand and placed a flag from each country. I used the colors from the flags to complete the background, surrounding my hand.
I hope my family members who read this blog enjoy this information. It was well worth the investment to send off the required money and a little "spit", to find out, just who am I?
Do you hear the Olympic drums? The parade of nations meant more to me, this year.
