Turn a Photo into Watercolor

Standard

Flower

Isn’t this a lovely picture?  I took a photograph of this iris when I was on a girlfriends’ trip to southern Louisiana.  We went to Avery Island — home of a beautiful garden, a bird sanctuary, and Tabasco.

I’ve been playing around with a new app, and I thought this photograph turned out the best.  The app is called “Waterlogue” ($3.99 in the Apple App Store), and it converts any photo to an assortment of watercolor images.  You can then save your new image to your Camera Roll, and you can even print it yourself or send it to a photo printing site.  It’ll make you look like an artist — exactly what every crapsman hopes for!

Easy Photo Frame

Standard

Dub

Cute kid, huh?!  Warner is my friend Karen’s grandson, and I love this boy and this photo frame so much I just had to share. Karen created this craft and uses several to display a photo collage of her family.  To create it, she used a black canvas and a frayed piece of burlap a little smaller than the canvas.  Karen used glitter-threaded burlap, but that’s certainly not necessary.  She dabbed some tan-colored paint around the mat’s edges, attached the the burlap to the mat with a spot or two of glue, and finished by gluing the clamp to the top.  Cute, cute, cute!
