Turning Photos into Watercolor Prints!

Everyone loves to use photos to decorate their home, myself included. Last week when I found out about the new waterlogue app that transforms your photos into watercolor prints, I had to give it a try.  Want to know what is even more fun than actually painting? Letting an app do it for you! ;)

If you hang out on Instagram, I shared a photo of the Old Well at UNC-Chapel Hill that was the first photo I changed using the app. I am amazed at how pretty and realistic the results are! The app sketches the photo, applies a filter, and then "paints" it into a charming rendition that looks both authentic and unique.

The app allows you to save the watercolor image as a high quality image, and I was curious to see how they looked printed. I used white cardstock to print them since I had it on hand. I converted two of our favorite travel photos, printed at home, and popped them into my favorite Z Gallerie frames. I love how well they turned out...instant art! :)

How unique this would be as a housewarming, birthday, thank you gift...the possibilities are endless! Here are a few other prints that I think turned out well:

If you want a little DIY artwork for your home, check out the waterlogue app (sells for $2.99). I would love to hear your thoughts if you've tried it!

keep in touch!
