DIY Project: Framed Quote Print

This morning, a friend of mine posted this Voltaire quote on Pinterest, which really resonated with me. It linked to an Etsy shop, selling among other things, ceramic plaques with famous quotes.

A plaque like this wouldn't really work in my office, but I had the idea to print & frame it, in colors that would coordinate nicely with the rest of my decor. I made the print in Pages, and then printed it on photo paper, using my Canon photo printer for a saturated, professional look.

The shine on the glass makes the first line hard to see in this photo (it's easy to see in person), so I've added this closeup, which looks all dark & drab, but that is just so the lighter text will show up in the picture.

This was such an easy project, perfect for some quick DIY satisfaction, as a boost between finishing larger projects. And as it turns out, it fits perfectly in my new office, I'm so happy with it.

  1. Well, *I* love it. Your Pinterest friend is made of awesome because that's a lovely quote. ;) So much of life is about attitude and so much of attitude is about making a conscious choice. I say a pretty little framed print like this is a good reminder.
