Birth Info Subway Art

So I recently found this on Pinterest:





I pinned it, knowing I would want to make this someday. Well that day came this week. There's this baby at work that I have FALLEN IN LOVE WITH! Seriously. I want to take him home with me. So does everyone pretty much. I decided to make this for him. He doesn't really have a name yet so I omitted the name.

I can't show you the one I made for him, but I redid it with my birth info. I pulled some of the stuff my mom wrote in my baby book. Check it out:




I just made an 8x10 white canvas in Photoshop. I used Century Gothic (my new favorite font) as the font. Then just altered the sizes and directions and colors to fill the page. I sent his to be sent at Walgreens. Then I found one of those 10x14 all glass frames at Walmart. I centered the image and then it's see through around it. It turned out SO CUTE! I loved it!

I'm totally going to make these for my future family. I think it would be a great idea to have everyone's (mom, dad, kids) lined up together.


What would yours or your kids' say?

I love this! I can't wait to find this on Pinterest. I am so pinning this and I think I'll do one for my boy. What level of difficutly would you say this was? Thanks for sharing.

@gin- It was pretty easy to do for me, but I'm pretty good at working around Photoshop. I even think this is something you could do in Picnik or other photo programs. It's basically creating a bunch of different text boxes and then sizing them to fill the screen! You could add images and borders to fill in to!
