Recycle Old Framed Prints to New Word Art

Phew!
My computer is working again.
While it was acting up,
unfortunately, I was having a meltdown too.
It's up.
I'm good.
And here's a little something I was working on.
My friend, Ann, had some older framed prints
that she wanted to redo.
New Word Art for the bathroom


will give these older pictures new life.




So it's easy to take everything apart

keeping the matte separate.

I used a new piece of foamboard

to paint a white and ivory blend.

After printing the text in Channel font

I penciled the back and pressed the transfer from the front.

Then I used a crisp little flat brush

to paint in the lettering.






Ann got this idea from Pottery Barn.



Changing up the wording a bit,

she will have fun reminders for the grandchildren.






Pin It!

So a fresh recycle

will bring trendy style

to Ann's bath.

It sure makes you think about

old things in a new way.


So glad to have my keyboard back!

What a fun way to upcycle old art! I love the sentiments on them & I bet she is going to enjoy them immensely.

I was just thinking yesterday that we hadn't heard anything from you in a few days. Glad everything's back to normal. The new signs look great. Is there anything you can't do?? :) Have an awesome day!
