While I was at Round Top’s Antique Weekend, I saw some pieces in a rustic frame with quotes painted on linen/canvas. While I loved the look, $250 for one frame was WAY out of my budget. After looking at the pieces a little closer, I thought I could get scrappy and make a few of my own.
I found a few custom wood frames of different sizes in Warrenton and painted them with Annie Sloan Old White to match our style.
Then I purchased the Sugar Plum font from Creative Market and designed three images within my Cricut Design Space. I wanted one quote to go across the three frames so I used this one from Magnolia Market.
I attached linen fabric to the back of the frames with a stapler, and printed each of the quotes on Cricut vinyl to use as a stencil. Once I had the right placement on the fabric, I used Martha Stewart black acrylic paint and a dauber to paint the quote on the linen.
And viola! I ended up with three custom prints for under $75!
