Have I mentioned before how much I love digital? It’s easy, you never run out of anything, except for maybe paper and ink for your printer, and you can create great, cheap decor with it! It’s right up my alley 🙂
So, Littlefoot’s room has been a bit bare on his walls. Not completely, because he has a couple of shelves and his name and a banner… Okay, so maybe not as bare as I thought. But enough that I’ve been wanting to do something to add more personality. His room is sports themed and, after one ofhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif the designers I CT for (CT stands for Creative Team) created an ABC Wall Art template, I jumped at the chance to make something great with it! I searched for the perfect digital kit and found one called “Hooray for the Home Team” by Kathy Winters Designs. It’s football related and so cute! Oh, and the ABC Wall Art Template was created by the lovely Krisi Kreations.
If you’ve never used Photoshop Elements or joined the glorious world of templates, you are missing out! Definitely download the trial version of Photoshop and look for the millions of template related tutorials that show you how to use them. It’s so easy!!! I created the wall art in about 30 minutes and then sent it away to Costco where I had them print it as an 11×14.
I wasn’t sure what I’d do about a frame until I stumbled upon wood frames in that size at Dollar Tree! Have I mentioned before how much I love that place? I knew I wanted to dress the frame up a little, so I found these cute buttons at Hobby Lobby and used my 40% coupon (they ended up being about $1.25 or so). I just had to take the knobs off the back of them and then hot glued them to the frame. I inserted my lovely print and VOILA!!! Cheap, cute, personalized wall art for my boy. It’s perfect! The great thing too is that I didn’t have to paint the frame. It came in that red shade which matched the red tone of the decor in his room perfectly.
