One of my latest Pinterest finds has inspired me to create some wall art for our bedroom. Our bedroom walls have been completely bare for the 3+ years we've been living here until the end of July when I finally hung up a nice frame the hubby's grandma bought me after our wedding earlier this year, so I decided to create this project using a color scheme that will coordinate with our room. This project is very simple and is an easy way to add some personalized wall art to a room without the use of photographs. The idea behind it is to list out important dates for you and your significant other or family. The dates I used are my birthday, his birthday, the day we first met (roughly), the day of our first date, and the day we were married.
I used Photoshop to create an 8x10 document, with the background shaded to a shade of teal that will work with our green curtains and blue bedding. After playing with various fonts, I settled with Goudy Stout for the dates and shaded them a light but muted blue-gray color. Lastly, I found a design online that I used to add some depth to the background and inserted it in black behind the text. I decided to just print it out on regular weight glossy paper on a color laser jet printer, rather than onto photo paper and really like the added "texture" that was added by printing it like this. I love the way it looks hanging on the wall in our room in my favorite frame.
