Sweet and Cheap Art

So do you remember a while back when I introduced you to Bryce's room and mentioned that I would be giving more details and then I never did?  So although I have mainly been working on Emma's room I also finished this cute little thing.

These now hang just as you walk into Bryce's room.  This project cost me all of $2.  I found these ugly 60's pictures mounted to pieces of wood at the DI.

Then I primed them white and used blue acrylic on the front.  Then I noticed a spot were the blue was messed up a little and I tried to fix it.  That made it worse, so I started wiping it off, but some had already dried.  So often I start a project thinking it will turn out one way and by a stroke of creative genius (ok, luck) something happens to make it turn out so much better.  Anyway, once I rubbed off some of the blue I REALLY liked it.  So I printed up what I wanted it to say, rubbed the back of the paper with chalk, and traced it onto the pictures.  Than I painted the words on and hung them up.

LOVE THEM!  They are just what the entry to this room needed and I love the sentiment.  Although I must admit that the to the moon and back is a bit of an understatement about how much I love my sweet baby Brycey.

Let's see I will link this up to The Girl Creative and Making the World Cuter
