Dog Rules

I finally created a piece of artwork to cover the 4 ft. wall above my dog cages at the front door. I might go back and add their names in vinyl above their cages, but I thought this was a great start! A couple of my background papers are a little too "busy," I think, but in real life it doesn't look bad. They're all readable.

I started off with a 24x30 canvas, painted it black and glued on strips of paper that I had cut with scissors to give the ripped effect. I added a layer of mod podge, then used black vinyl and my trusty cricut (and oh-so-many fonts I can't even name them all!) to create the phrases. I added another couple of layers of mod podge and my creation was ready to hang! The original idea came from The Pleated Poppy. I don't have any kids or need for "family rules," but I do have the next best thing... my precious puppies, Sophie and Alex. *Sorry for the glare, it's the best I could get!

BTW: I think this is all GREAT advice!

Dog Rules
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride
Take naps and stretch before rising
Eat with enthusiasm, Stop when you've had enough
Never bark when a growl will do
Never pretend to be something you're not
Run, romp and play daily
When a loved one comes home always run to greet them
When it's in your best interest practice obedience
No matter how often you're scolded don't buy into the guilt thing and pout- run right back and make friends
Be loyal
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk
