Adding Personal Touches To Your Home

When it comes to affinity in design, using your imagination is a must!  If you can draw or paint, then this becomes simple.  Just create a work of art for your home.  This can be in the form of a framed drawing or canvas painting or a mural on the wall.

…whatever you are into.

 

The last few days, I have been thinking wall art and wondering just what I can create with photo editing to add some personal touches in my home.  Photo editing is a great option for those who aren’t particularly good with their hands but have a creative eye.  Taking a photo I had of my daughter Brianna, I combined it with the background of a modern Alice In Wonderland drawing and then edited the photo image to look like a drawing as well.  This was the result:

I’m thinking this may even make a nice image for a cushion cover…will see.  There is loads more that can be done with photo editing.  You can even create an Andy Warhol or Impressionists type effect to your photos.  These can then be framed or printed on cloth.  If anyone has any other ideas, please share in the comments below.

  1. Homemade art definitely adds a wonderful depth. It brings life to a space. I am lucky to be surrounded by my wife’s incredible artifacts- one a set of old barn boards that carries a colorful scrap metal map of the US made from hand-cut license plates from each state (that I pray every night doesn’t fall off the studs in the wall, the sucker weighs about 100 lbs).
