Watercolors

I have some wonderful opportunities to take photos here in Florida but I’m not an artist. We have several artists in our family….I’m just not one of them.

But my girlfriend, nicknamed Podso shared her secret.

Waterlogue

It’s an app you can buy for your IPAD and I am totally smitten!

I’ve taken some photos from my blog and turned them into watercolors. Life will never be the same….and a photo will never be safe from waterlogueing! heehee!

Thanks Podso for inspiring me!

I’m joining Beautiful Sunday,

Mosaic Monday,

and Amaze me Monday!

Do you love to ‘tweak’ your photos, too?

Yours turned out so well!

Cranberry Morning said...

Those are SO beautiful. I've seen Podso's watercolor photos too and checked into getting Waterlogue. Unfortunately, it's not available except for i-products. wah. Love the photos, Diane!

Hello Down there In Sunny Florida. Your tweaking watercolor photos are glorious. Love them. Hugs Judy

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Oh, what fun! I will have to check this app out. I love tweaking my photos and my 'go to' app for that is Snapseed. Have a nice day! Twyla

Susie said...

Oh what fun that would be. I love the way it makes the pictures look. I can see you playing with this. Can it work on a picture of people?? oxoxo,Susie

ann said...

What a lovely affect. The mysteries of photo editing are being revealed, helping the untalented become more so. I like the bird house best.

Stacey said...

Beautiful! I still haven't tried it out but definitely will. Your photos look like little paintings.

podso said...

They are amazing, Diane! The transformation is so much fun. Glad you got the app and are "hooked." Doesn't it make you feel a little like an artist? :-)

TexWisGirl said...

they are beautiful. lots of iphoners and ipadders falling for that sweet app!

Very different .
I really would say, that you could try a simple water color, following these images. Its hard, but once you get the knack, it comes easy.
All these new apps now coming out. they will be making tea for us soon. );-

Kathy said...

Yes - I love playing with different apps that will give my pictures different effects. Especially when posting photos on Instagram. I'll have to look into this app. Thanks Diane

wow what a very very cool idea-I think I would be hooked on that app too-I am staying away from those smart phones though-we live in the woods and don't go out much-so no need-but it amazes me what all is available out there-this is the best one yet that I have heard of

Ariadne Skyrianidou said...

Oh they look so beautiful like real watercolours!AriadnefromGreece!

Dee Lapin said...

Beautiful!!!

Red Rose Alley said...

Diane,
I have seen these water color pictures before from other blog friends. They look just like paintings. They are very different, but I will always prefer the real thing. And just wanted to let you know that I think you take some of the prettiest pictures I've seen with all of that Florida beauty around you. Your nature and flower pictures are great.

Have a peaceful weekend.

love,
~Sheri

Linda @ A La Carte said...

So pretty! Love watercolors and this app is amazing. hugs, Linda

Pamela Gordon said...

These are really beautiful Diane. I have the app on my iPhone and wish it was available for the MacBook too. I don't have a lot of photos on my phone right now and there aren't any nice scenery ones. I'll have to wait until the snow goes and take some. It's a really fun app! And we can all be artists!

Montanagirl said...

I MUST get an iPad soon. I've been contemplating it. I LOVE the Waterlogue effect. Fabulous photos! I do have an iMac, but I don't think the app works on an iMac.

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

That looks very cool!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

I hope Waterlogue is available for Android because I've got to try it. Your photos look great...thanks for sharing!

Deb~Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

Wow, what an amazing app! Almost makes me want to buy an IPad (but not quite LOL!)

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

Your inner artist is getting a way to shine with this app.

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Such a sweet way to transform photos, love your birdhouse shot...so pretty!
Thanks so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday...
Blessings,

Oh, I wish I had an Ipad! I was thinking of getting one for myself for my Christmas and 65th birthday present but then the sump pump went out so it wasn't meant to be but I am going to start saving up for one as that alone is worth it! They are beautiful! I just can't get over it. It is the "coolest" thing I have seen in a long time! Wow!

Incipient Wings said...

Gorgeous!!! Love that:)

Jeanne said...

These turned out really well. I just love this effect. I'll be downloading that app for sure. Thanks!!

deb @ frugal little bungalow said...

I don't have the app but love seeing photos that people are using...all of yours are just gorgeous but I think that last one of the little bird house is my favorite! :)

Introverted Art said...

wow this little guy is amazing ;-) I actually thought they were real watercolor paintings.

I've seen so many wonderful Waterlogue photos around the internet, and yours are also wonderful, Diane! I keep saying I have to purchase this app. I know I'll love it!

Isn't that amazing? I don't have it yet, but am going to definitely get it. Love your photos - especially the birdhouse.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

The lavender girls got Waterlogue! - you've created some nice scenes with the painting effect.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Someone just recently told me about this app, but I have never seen it before....How amazing is that...How in the world did someone make that!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Yes I do ... I love to tweak (my photos)! And I need that app. Your 'paintings' look wonderful. I also really like your mosaic tile piece on your header. Very Florida!

must love junk said...

I've seen a lot of this lately but haven't tried it...so fun! :)

Donna said...

Isn't it great fun? I thought you knew about it. I can't paint worth a lick, so thank goodness for programs like that!

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Oh my gosh Diane, that is simply the best version I have ever come across....I see tons of cards in your future.

Botanic Bleu said...

The birdhouse is my favorite. I have to upgrade my iPhone before I can download Waterlogue and I am so envious of all the beautiful watercolored photos you have.

Judith

Doreen@househoneys said...

Who knew? That's amazing Diane! So it sounds like you use this with your iPad?

Karen Harvey Cox said...

Your photos make amazing watercolors. I love that app too. You are an artist besides. Look at the beautiful things you make. I can't even sew on a button.

Wishing you a lovely day.
Karen

BeachGypsy said...

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

I LOVE your art work Diane!
I heard about Waterlogue on Judith's blog - it's amazing. I haven't got an ipad or iphone - hopefully it will become available for android phones too!

Musings from Kim K. said...

Looks another app I need to explore! Your photos look amazing as water colors. What fun!

PS. You really do have the best adventures where you live. The photo opportunities are amazing.

Trace4J said...

How stinkin cool is that.

Woolie O Blessings

Barbara said...

Too much fun! A great app, enjoy!

Snap said...

Love your waterlogued images. I love water colors. I have to get a new IPAD ... mine is one of the originals and moves very slowly. If I get a new one, I'll have to get Waterlogued!

Mary Cromer said...

Well shoot, may not be able to get this program app then, as I saw it just now on Podso blog...I have no IPad, well these sure are beautiful...maybe Picasa will eventually add something like this ;)

irisabbey said...

I have an iPad! If I can produce watercolor images like I see on your site, I'm definitely getting Waterlogue. Thanks for sharing this. I saw your link at the Amaze Me Monday link party. Ann Marie @ Iris Abbey

Diane Writes said...

If I did not read the text, I will be deceived. I will think of this as a real oil painting. I swear! Such a nice app. But I guess the app works best because of the great photo shots.

Thank you for forever linking up namemate :) Have a great week ahead!
