Chronicles of a Big Girl Room: Pottery Barn Kids Inspired Art

I love the Pottery Barn Kids catalog.  I like to pore over each page in search of inspiration for my girls' rooms and playroom.  Occasionally I'll buy things, but there are times I think, "I can do that!"  Have you seen these $199 lovelies?

Since Camille's room is dress (princess if you ask her) themed, I immediately wanted to create a piece of art that reflected that.  Enter Photoshop Elements! 

This is the one that's hanging in her room right now, but I also ordered one in lighter colors.  We'll see which one makes the final cut after more elements of her room are in place!

To create this, I opened a 16x20 file in Elements.  I played around with fonts and colors for awhile until I had the text the way I liked it.  I wanted a cute dress as the graphic, but was having a hard time finding one I liked for free, so I ended up buying some digital clip art from this etsy shop.  I had it printed at Costco- 16x20 prints are $5.99!  The frame was tricky.  I wanted to buy it at Target because they were having a sale.  Unfortunately, the 16x20 frames only came in black.  Nothing a little spray paint can't fix! 

I love how it turned out, but more importantly, Camille loves it too!  She thinks her room is actually going to be a boutique though... we'll have to discuss the concept a little more. :)
