I wanted to share with you a great app that I've used to transform regular pictures into incredible watercolor-like pictures. I've used it to create graduation, housewarming and moving away gifts. They're personal, unique and so economical!
The app is called Waterlogue. I have to say it's my FAVORITE app. So fun to play around with!
Here are some pictures from my recent trip to Ecuador that I've "waterlogued"...
This app works especially well with architectural pictures, which brings me to my favorite waterlogued picture....
It's of my neighbors' house which several of us gave to them as a goodbye gift when they moved to Florida (boo hoo!!!). The trick to making it look like a real watercolor is to print it out on watercolor paper (with a lot of texture). I trimmed the paper and mounted it into a simple black frame that I picked up at Target. Doesn't it look fabulous? We all signed the back - the perfect moving away gift! Straight from the heart! My neighbors, David and Russell, loved it.
I was out yesterday late afternoon (such nice light then!) taking a picture of my house. I wanted to capture it before the leaves fall off the trees. I'll be making a waterlogue of it and will be giving it to my husband for Christmas! Shhh - don't tell!
Until next time!
