Hello there! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Today I’m sharing a little gift made for my mom: a diy Mother’s Day print.
I’ve known for a few weeks that I wanted to make something for my Mom but I wasn’t sure what it should say. I finally settled on this phrase. Which is actually quite appropriate because my parents are moving in a few months (out of what is pretty much my childhood home. i’m adjusting to the idea…)
First I started with a sketch:
Then I translated it onto a higher quality sketchpad paper. I’ve used acrylic paint and a paintbrush to do lettering for some previous prints, but I wanted to try something different and easier to handle this time. I chose a broad-tipped opaque marker from Michael’s Crafts (from their Recollections brand). I would have preferred a paint pen, but I could only find them white, silver, and gold. (anyone know of any paint pen brands that come in colors??)
And there you have it! Just pop it in a frame and boom!… Instant Gift! Did you diy something for your mom/grandma/friend/special person for Mother’s Day?
PS – there’s still time to enter my Blogiversary Giveaway! Read about the prizes and how to enter here.
So cute!!! She must have loved it 🙂
Oh and Sharpie has paint markers in all kinds of colours and thicknesses. I have not seen them at Michael’s but art supply stores have them around here (sadly I only know of two Canadian stores that I know have them. Sorry!)
Thanks, she did 🙂 I will have to check art supply stores in Ohio, or online. Thanks for the tip!
This is such a cute idea. I am sure your mother loved it. Homemade gifts are the best.
Thank you 🙂 I love getting homemade gifts!
