After a little thought, a few more clicks on the computer, and hardly any time at all, here's what I came up with...
I like to call them FAUX BURLAP PRINTS!
The first two photos were of the ever-so-lovely FAUX BURLAP printed with the title of one of hubby and I's new favorite poems "Slow Dance" to fill a wood picture frame. The third and fourth photos showcased the FAUX BURLAP printed with "Family Memories" for the cover of a photo box full of family photos.
Here's what they look like in their temporary homes...
Here's the tutorial to make your own...
Computer with Microsoft Word program
Open a New Document in Microsoft Word.
Decrease view size so that you can see the entire document.
Insert a Rectangle Shape and use measuring tabs on the top and left sides of the document to make your desired shape (I made a 4 x 6 inch shape to fit my frames).
Now fill your shape with a Texture. I chose woven mat as I wanted that lovely burlap look.
Now insert a Text Box.
Add text and personalize text font/size/color.
Adjust the Text Box size as needed to fit within your burlap Rectangle Shape.
Right click on the Text Box and select Format Text Box.
Change Transparency to 100% & change Line color to No Color.
Make any necessary adjustments to achieve the look you want.
Cut out and place in frame.
Now, what to do with the rest of the room : )
Until next time...
