I made this picture over the weekend as a gift for my little nephew on his birthday (he turned two!). I was inspired by Sheralyn over at Lovely Design - she has a generous post explaining how she designs her graphics for printing. I basically followed her method...except that I used the free Paint.Net software (instead of Photoshop or Illustrator) for everything.
I had a picture like this of my name hanging on the wall next to my bed, when I was a girl. Mine was made of calligraphy... I loved to read the meaning and the verse; it was something very special to me. I'm planning on personalizing one of these for each of my children's birthdays this year.
All framed up! The colors are a bit dark in this photo - it's hard to take photos of pictures because the glass creates quite a glare!
