Bathroom Reminder Signs

Do you ever get the feeling that something is missing?
 That there is gap where there shouldn't be a gap?

I have had this feeling about the space above the kids' bathroom toilet for ages!
Here is a photo of the bathroom early last fall before I started its colour transformation.  
 The room is no longer blue and orange, and I am very happy with how it has turned out (you'll see it in the next few days!) but that open space above the turquoise basket needed SOMETHING. . . .

So last night I grabbed a few dollar store canvases and made THESE:

Simply done, yes, but graphic and space-filling at the same time!!

And goodness knows, my kids could use the reminders, too!

The "quilt-looking" area of each sign  is squares of coordinating scrapbook paper that I applied with homemade Mod Podge ( you know- white glue and water !)

I cut the letters using my Cricut and black cardstock. 
On they went with Mod Podge, too.

And here is a shot of the signs, in place, with a few other items in the "bathroom transformation."

Can't show you much more because where is the surprise in that??

Want to see another Mod Podge sign I made? Here is a link to my "Baby It's Cold Outside" sign.

And that Heart Mosaic art hanging above the medicine cabinet above - it can be found HERE.
