Turn any photo into watercolor art

I love to share cool ways to create art at home. A lot of times I'll use photos in our home instead of buying art. It's more personal and a lot cheaper! I shared the Waterlogue app for your phone years ago and it's such a cool option. 

I wanted to print out a trip from our recent Italy trip, but wanted to soften it a bit instead of using the actual photo. The Waterlogue image was too washed out for what I wanted. I started searching ways to turn photos into watercolor art and this site came up. (This is not sponsored.) 

I had so much fun playing around with it! You upload your photo and then pick from at TON of options along the top to edit them the way you want. There are way too many to show you here, but these were a few of my favorites. 

I changed up the door image I shared in our trip post into this colorful sketch:

This one was another sketch option and is much darker:

They even have a Lego option! Isn't that fun? That would be a cool idea for a kid space:

Ha! I love it. 

I wanted to use one of the landscape photos from our trip, and this was the watercolor edit:

I wanted it to be a little more defined, so I went with the landscape edit instead:

How cool is that? Of course just regular photos always look great, but if you're looking for a little something extra, this is a fun site to try out! (I just right clicked and saved the image.)

I printed it out for our kitchen and absolutely LOVE it!:

You can find that free pear print here.

I love to share these free sites and hope you can use it for some art in your home! :) Have you tried something like this?

  1. I prefer using unedited photos as art for my home! I like the look of the lego edit, though. How fun! ❤️✨

  2. Thanks a lot for this awesome link!
    The watercolour edit always turns out in hues of red for me, irregardless of the colours of the original photo. But it's still a great effect!

  5. Great effects! I use Photoshop because I have it and I've have been using it for over 10 years. But, if I didn't have Photoshop I would definitely try this. Actually, I might anyway.
