I wanted to add a piece of art above my desk so I went looking for something that had a punch of yellow since that was my accent color for the room. Shopping for the last couple of weeks was a bust so I decided that I would try to make my own artwork.
One night, A. started to sing "you are my sunshine" to me and I thought the words to that song were perfect. I thought, every time I see the words to that song, it will remind of me of the song I sing to my kids. I typed out the lyrics, playing with the font using Fireworks and came up with some samples.
Since my screen color is always vastly different than the printed product, I decided to have it printed in various shades. I narrowed down the selection to these.
The four got narrowed down to two. I didn't know if I wanted a huge pop of color or just a subtle one.
I thought the dark grey on top of the grey walls looked better. Enlarged, it will give me the subtle pops of yellow that I want without being over powering.
Once I made my decision, I made it into a 16x20 print.
Total cost was only $5.99, the price of the enlargement. I love how it turned out. What do you think?
