New Home

I love to see where my artwork lands once its sent out, and I was lucky to get an e-mail from a recent giveaway winner, Emily.  She won our Leaves Silhouette giveaway a few weeks ago.  Here is the painting, now residing in her master bedroom.

Doesn’t it look great?  I love the bird prints and ceramic owl keeping the tree company.  So fitting.

Magazine Artwork

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?
