Insta Art



Guys.

I'm breaking in with an important bulletin, or, "A very important newsletter", as Calvin would say.

I just discovered Canvas People is offering 85% off all of their canvases right now. Annnnnd...I've been pining around for some Waterlogue activity all week. As it turns out, we don't have an iPhone for that app, but Cory found a suitable alternative, with FotoSketcher.

So....Cory played around with it a bit last night and came up with a few different options using three of my photos.

I just ordered a 20x30 inch canvas for $36, including tax and shipping!! What???! I know. And they have smaller sizes for even cheaper.

Get Yours! 85% off ALL Canvas Prints. Deal of the century!




I have no idea how long they'll be offering this deal, so this might not be the best time for neurotic waffling. I curbed mine first thing this ayem and ordered it up. I sort of want to turn every single thing into a watercolor now...especially all things flowery and springy.

Of course, you can just use a regular photo, too. That is allowed, even in this day and age when we're turning everything into something else and making "art" with the click of a button. :)

Also, remember when I said we might make a few jpegs available? Well, despite pleas from my pal Joy, I keep forgetting. So, let's make today the day.


If you're interested in Cory's legendary windmill shot, it can be yours for $15. Paypal me at shannandmartin@yahoo.com and I'll send you the jpeg file, then you can print it or use it as your computer wallpaper or get super rainy-day crazy and turn it into a watercolor then slap it on a canvas. What you can't do is sell it or use it for advertising. Fair enough? I have to protect CMB's skills, you know. :)

If you're interested in one of the FotoSketcher prints above, those can be available, too, same price. Just paypal me and let me know which one you'd like!

So there, instant Thursday brightification.

Thanks for being so rad, all of you. Have a grand one!

    1. Sister, I KNOW. It kills me, too! I can't say no. It's personal art! Inexpensive!
      I like company with my misery.
      :D

  5. Yay to all of this! I love all-a-y'all's photos, but those pink flowers with the aqua-ish tablecloth…I really need that! Are those peonies? I've always been peony-green with envy for your peonies. I don't think we can grow them here. Bottom line, I neeeeeed that printed out. How 'bout it?!

  6. My photo editor software has a "watercolor" or "canvas" painting option. It always blows me away when I see a normal photo turned into a work of art.

    Love what you've done here.

    2. I just read that you might share your photos? Can I get on that train? I LOVE the sunflower photo too. I'm having a spring bridal shower for my sister and this spells shower gift all over it...Come to think of it, you could go into business and get some extra money selling your prints...

  8. Can I just use your photo and order my own canvas? I love all the artwork you feature...wish I had an eye with the camera! Also, I remember you posting about Korean food...I came up this blog today and thought of you...don't know if you know about it but Korean food done pretty simply...makes me want to make some tonight. http://www.koreanbapsang.com/

  9. I have a red poppy print I took years ago when my middle daughter was 2. While traveling the back roads we came upon a field of wild poppies. Those were some of the most beautiful photos I've ever taken. I've been waiting to have a wild hair one day to turn this into some sort of canvas art, but it's so expensive.

    As I was searching today, I came upon this post. I watercolorized mine on an older program adobe photoshop, only because I'm more familiar with this. It turned out wonderful! I never knew I could do this until I saw this post.

    So, I clicked from your site to the canvas people site and just ordered a 16 x 20 at a most affordable price.

    Thanks!

    1. I love it! Sounds like a pretty dreamy canvas. :) And there's nothing better than searing those beautiful moments into our memories. Happy to help!

  10. So, I've been in love with your flower photos for awhile... are you sharing any and all of them for the $15 fee? please say Yes!

  11. Great news. I have always wanted to get into printing on canvas. It's a nice information about the attractive canvas prints in affordable rates. Just few days ago I order a canvas from canvas design they also offer me 15% discount by using coupon code. They also offer me free shipping in UK mainland.
