The first time I saw the Skinny Cow ads was when Young House Love turned it into art for their nursery. I fell in love with it right away, and the colors were perfect for our boys’ room. So, I Googled around to find more ads. I found one print ad and a few more designs used on the Skinny Cow website.
I love that the dachshund is being held up by a balloon to share with the giraffe.
Aren’t the monkeys from this coupon cute, too?
I couldn’t find other printed designs, so I went to You Tube and found two commercials.
I paused on the frames I liked and did a print screen and saved the image to my computer. Then, I opened the images in Photoshop to make alterations as I liked. After an hour or so of playing around, I had five new 5 inch by 7 inch art pieces to frame.
I had to recreate the koala and monkey images to place them on a solid background.
I didn’t have to do much to the other images, except remove the ice cream and text for the actual ad. I bought five ugly faux wood $3.00 frames from Wal-Mart and gave them a quick coat of gloss white spray paint.
I love how the group of five looks in the room, adding a dose of whimsy and a pop of color. Not bad for $15.00. Have you turned any magazine pages into artwork?
