Grandpas Art and Pixlr Express

“Grandpas are just antique little boys”.  I just love that saying.  Isn’t it so true?  Having a dad who is an antiques dealer, I grew up surrounded by antiques and since he is an active grandpa 43 times over, I wanted to make some sort of printable of this saying.

Baseball just screams “little boys”, so I started out by looking for free baseball mitt images on  This is the image that I chose:


Next, I went to my new favorite online playground, Pixlr Express.  This free online image editor is different than Pixlr’s full-blown site and super easy to figure out.   After messing around with “Adjustment”, “Borders” and “Type”, this is what I came up with:

Grandpas Antique

Just in time for Father’s Day.  What do you think?  Antique-y enough?

If you haven’t done so yet, shuffle on over to Pixlr Express.  It is so much fun!  Like a day at the ballpark with grandpa.
