The tutorial for the actual art can be found here. I did follow her instructions to the T. Easy peasy gals! I used PicMonkey to edit a high resolution photo. Then I blacked it out and started the process of adding the text. That was the fun part, playing around with the different fonts and sizes, coming up with your favorite family sayings or Bible verses. Then I sent the file on over to Staples where it is printed on blueprint paper--genius! For $2.99 they printed this up. It has different shading on the print just like blueprints do, giving it a vintage or aged look. If you don't have a Staples any office supply store with a printing department should be able to do this.
Here is a side shot. I used a very black flat paint and then I distressed the edges and print after it was all dry with a very fine sandpaper. Gave it more of an aged look.
Now this print above I did with a red background simply by following the same tutorial, just making the background red and the text white also. This I had printed at Walmart quite reasonably, I think it was $8.00 for a 16X20. Did you know Walmart now does canvas prints! So this one may go on a canvas if the price isn't too high. Each kiddo is getting one for their room--I want them to see these rules when they wake up , go to bed, sit on the bed, change their underwear, do homework, read a book....you get it--all the time!
These prints will just spiff up your nest quite nicely for not a whole lot of cash to boot! I love having inspiring quotes in my rooms, don't you?
