DIY "Sleepy Hollow" Book Page Wall Art

I've been wanting to hang a blown up version of a book page on my walls for a long time now. While decorating our foyer for Halloween I decided to finally scratch this project off my to-do list! I knew right away I wanted to recreate a page from "Sleepy Hollow". Growing up I remember my dad reading this story to us and it's always been one of my favorites.
This project is super easy thanks to PicMonkey (See a full picture tutorial at the blog)
Step 1: Head to www.picmonkey.com
Step 2: Hover over "Design" and choose 8 x 10 canvas size
Step 3: Next, in order to recreate that old book page background you will need to select your texture, which is the net-like image on the bottom left-side of your screen.
Then choose "Paper" and select the antique brown looking square. Click "apply'.
Step 4. Now it's time to start adding your text. Click the "Tt" in the left navigation box.
Click the "Add Text" bar. Play around with the different fonts and type in your wording in the center of your canvas (you will have to eyeball it).
I used the "Roman Antique" font. Don't forget to add your page number!
Step 5. Optional, but you could add flourishes to your art too (click the butterfly on the left). Some are only available if you pay and "upgrade" your account.
Step 6: Last thing to do is to "Save" your image to your computer. If you would like a poster size of your wall art you can have them printed at your local Staples, Office Max, Walgreens, etc. I usually look for a store that is running a current sale on their prints/posters. This time I scored my poster for 50% off.
Step 7: Use your home printer to print smaller art or have it printed at your local Staples, Office Max, Walgreens, etc.
I'm SO in love with my new wall art! I can't wait to make something similar for Christmas.
Recreate a page for a children's book and these would look so precious in a nursery! Or what about art for a library or reading room? There are so many fun possibilities!
