Check out this cute piece of summer wall art I made for free:
I was inspired by this lovely print on etsy.
It just screamed summer to me with those bold colors and playful beachy print.Since my husband is so wonderfully talented at Photoshop, I knew he’d be able to replicate this print for me, costing nothing more than printer paper and toner. Here’s our version:
I wanted to put it on the shelf above the couch, but I thought it would look too small on the shelf. It did.Dan and I got to thinking and we decided a set of 3 matching prints would look great together. We brainstormed and thought an octopus and a mermaid would round out the beach/sea theme we had going.
I wish I could tell you how Dan did it. I know he googled to find the images we ended up using, then created a silhouette of them. He said the chevron wasn’t too difficult to make either. You know, because he spends a lot of time in Photoshop.As for the frame, we’ve long had it in our hall closet. We got it as a wedding gift with a cut out mat that spelled “Wedding Day,” but didn’t have anywhere to put it. Until now. Is it perfect? No. Does it add color to the room? Definitely. Is it fun for a quick summer living room update? Absolutely.
