Quick 4x6 framed art + GIVEAWAY!!

Today is my last day here on the SEI blog. This has been truly an amazing experience, I have loved every second of it! Thank you all so very much for having me! ..and putting up with all of my rambling! hee heee! I leave you with one last home decor project. A 'hybrid' project of sorts.. if you dabble in digital scrapbooking as well, or know your way around a computer.. this will be right up your ally! Heck, thinking about it now, this could also easily be done using 100% traditional scrapbooking supplies!


Looooove that bird from the Playday Chiplets! So cute! The frame that I used here is 4x6. In Photoshop, I created a 4x6 canvas, and using the text tool, added the large 'H' ..then, using the shape tool, I added the speech bubble and finished off with the "h is for harley" ..it took a few tries to get the spacing right, just test printed on plain paper, and then when I was ready to final print, I used photo paper. Once printed, I added the bird chipboard accent and that was it!! Super fast and super easy.. and super budget friendly! Such a great way to customize something as a gift as well. I didn't make this one in particular as a gift.. this one went straight to my son's room.. but I could definitely see myself making a variation of this as a gift down the road sometime!

Thank you all again for having me! It has been a blast! It was truly an honour to be asked to guest blog for a week, seriously.. still giddy over it!! THANK YOU!!

Jen :)

Sorry. Can't pick just one. It's a toss up between the Home Sweet Home and the altered 4x6 frame. I'm a sucker for repurposed home decor...and I've been trying to learn how to do the hybrid thing, too.

Really fun week!

Sara Gingue said...

Monday's post was really awesome because I love to decorate around the house, and the butterfly post was really cool too. I have a daughter so I just may use some of those ideas for her room! :)

Donna said...

My favorite post was Wednesday the 14th. I love the title about what inspires her. It is my favorite, not only because I love what she did with the butterflies, but also because that was the subject of my daughter's recent college application essay. She is inspired by the wind and I was blown away (no pun intended) by what she wrote. She is going to major in English and hopes to become an Editor but I think she is very talented and should be a writer....a proud mom talking here. Thanks for sharing Jen with us. I love her website.
