So.. If you have been living in the life of blogland, you may have seen 'family rules' signs like these:
(found these various ones on pinterest.com)
HERE IS MY FAMILY RULES SIGN:
I am not a huge fan on a lot of bold colors like these signs.. so I stuck with more neutral colors and used the bold color on the frame only.
If you like my version and don't want to spend lots on this project follow my steps ;)
Here is what you will need:
~Various scrap booking paper (I got mine from JoAnn fabric's for .41 cents a sheet!)
~A picture frame (Mine was free from my grandma)
~A computer, *Picnik.com*, and a printer.
~Sharpie (I used this to color the matte in my frame.. It was maroon and I knew it wouldn't go with the color choice of the frame and the sign itself... So it was kind of a cheap way to transform your matting.)
1.) If you do not like the way your frame looks, repaint it!
This is what my frame looked like BEFORE:
(I forgot to take a before pic of the one I used, but this one is the same but different matting color and picture)
This is what I did:
-Skipped the priming.
-Painted it in Sherwin Williams
-Distressed it by glazing it in Behr's.
2.) I went to pinterest and found a 'family rules' artwork that I wanted to use.. This is what I found:
I used pretty much all the same quotes, but placed them in different order ..
3.) Go to picnik.com and go to 'collage' and write each 'quote' in whatever font and color you like!
Save them to your documents.
4.) Print them like so:
(I trimmed mine down.. cutting wave-like lines on some of them)
I taped a strip of scrap paper to a piece of computer paper.
6.) Let dry and frame it!
Hope I inspired youns to make your own 'family rules' sign! :)
