DIY Printable Art

During my garage sale outing last weekend I found these fun, little frames.  They are square and the inside opening measures 5.5″ x 5.5″ .  I loved the detail on the inside edge and thought they would be perfect for a little touch of art in my home.  I didn’t want to spend money on the art so I created some myself.

I had three frames so I used the tag line for my website and my formal store.  Imagine, Create, Inspire.  I thought they would be perfect.  I used Photoshop Elements and some of my favorite fonts to make these art prints.

I printed them out (and you can too)  and cut them to be 3 x 3″.   I used some scrap book paper in the colors I wanted for the background.  Then I centered the words onto the scrap book paper and inserted them into the frames.  The frames did not have any back on them so I cut some cardboard to fit in behind the paper.

Here is one of the frames before any painting.

I used the same chalk paint that I used on my magazine rack re-do and my quirky desk organizer so things will coordinate in the rooms.  I did a little distressing on them as well.  I really like the way they turned out.  So pretty.

I used a little wire for the hanger.  There were hangers on the back and the were perfect for the wire or ribbon.  This makes the frames easier to hang.

For now they are hanging on the side of the amoire in our dining room.  This room will be transformed into an office in about a month and I am not sure I will keep them there.  I may find a better place for these gems.

      Why thank you Darca! It was fun and it didn’t take me very long. Just an evening. You should give it a try.

    Very cool that this is your tagline, you can have it in the office with you, always in front of you, or you could hang it anywhere in the home, they are adorable. Love the frames too. Great job.

    That is a great idea and the frames are the perfect size for that location! I also really like the color of the frames.

      Thank you. I love this chalk paint and I still have half the jar left. I had no idea it would go so far. I have used it on a couple of other projects all needing three coats. Wow! You really get your money’s worth with these guys. LOL! Thanks for the comments. I really appreciate it.
