More DIY Art

I'm redoing Mary's room on a budget, meaning I need to find thrifty ways to still make it cute.  The blog Sprik Space has tons of free printables, including lots of plain patterns.

I uploaded some of the plain patterns to Picnik (so sad Picnik will be going away) and played around with adding text.  I was surprised how easy it was to make some cute, personalized prints.

I quickly created a few things and I might play around some more to see what else I come up with.  Once I've finalized the designs, I'll send them to a photo printer to be printed.  If I had a color printer, I could just print them myself.  How simple is that?!?!

 I think a collection of these would look so cute.

I'm thinking about making my sister something like this for her orange and gray nursery once her baby is only a few more weeks!

Have you made prints like this?  If so, I would love to see them!  You could put a link in your comment.

Be sure to stop by Sprik Space to check out the other free printables and to say "hi" to Aimee.

This is a great idea. I have never tried this. What will you be using to replace picnik? I just found they are going.

These are so adorable. I'll definitely keep them in mind when I do my daughter's room.

Those are so cute and you can really do a lot with those! I'll have to play around some more. I'm so sad about Picnik but I think there are other programs that will be just as helpful. Rhoda from Southern Hospitality did a nice tutorial on Photoscape recently. I've got that on my to-do list. I might even make the purchase and do Photoshop. We'll see. Also, did you see the updates to Olioboard?
