Cottage Living room Art...

I was perusing prints off the net today for my white picture frames...

I thought I wanted roses...maybe some kind of flower bouquet...but... the prints were pretty low quality once I printed them out on my low quality printer...hee hee!
Well...I decided, instead, to play with my Photoscape Photo Editor and see what I could come up with...

I just picked a random picture... which was this one...and started playing with it...

And ended up with these...

I think they are really fun!

I am going to continue playing with them and see what I can come up with.....and maybe this one cuz my Louis is a lil odd....

I would recommend this program to anyone that likes to make inexpensive cottage art! You could possibly print them out on canvas and it would look like an oil many possibilities...Hope everyone is having a wonderful evening!


  1. Too cool, I've been wanting to do this for a while, so when I have a mo' which at this point won't be until....end of week, I'll play with it and let you know how I got on.
    Great idea and Louis' is cute!

  2. Those turned out really cool. I'm loving all the blue. The chair slip cover turned out great. Man your are on a row and I can't wait to see what you come up with next

  3. Louis is a doll! He really DOES love that chair, doesn't he? heehee

    I think you are onto something with that program. Can't wait to see more.

  4. Very cool! You are so creative!

  5. love the idea of turning a personal photo into art!! Amazing idea, I would have never thought of that.

  6. wow I read through some of your posts. What hard work and dedication can do. I will be following your progress. I am a single Mom, bought my house 5 years ago did some not so much fun behind the scenes reno's and now I am ready for the decorating fun stuff. pop on by. thanks, au revoir

  7. I will surely pop on by Caroline! Wow, being a single Mom...working, cleaning...trying to do all that by yourself! I am thinking you have WAAAY more stamina than me! I will see you soon! Soooo glad to have you!

  8. This is a great idea.
    How cool is that to be standing in the very room captured in a photo and looking at it all at the same time!
    Your living room captured at a moment in time.
    I like the idea of having it on a canvas like a painting.

    Maybe I'll give this a try - although right now I'm not hurting for artwork; but space to showcase it! LOL...


I love your comments and insights!
