Waterlogue’d Watercolours

I was surfing Pinterest the other day, just looking for new and amazing ideas, and sure enough – I found one!


 It’s a $2.99 app for your iPhone or iPad, and it changes your photos into watercolours!

Check these out:



I’ve always wanted a watercolour painting of my house, but they were always so expensive (rightly so, for the time and effort an artist would put into it.)

This – I can afford!

What an amazing housewarming gift this would make!

If you’re not into home ”paintings”, you could always go with portraits:


You can change up the type of watercolour as well – there are options for natural, illustrative, shallow, colour bloom etc.
Take one photo and try out all the options to see which you like best.


Waterlogue saves your image as a “high quality file”, that you can e-mail out, use as wallpaper or send to a printer to have a ‘painting’ made.

I’m DEFINITELY doing my house in the Spring when the flowers have started to bloom.
Right now, with 6 foot snowpiles, the effect might be lost.

Have a great one!

    Wow!!!! I LOVE that! I am not an app person (my children are like the girl at the bottom of your post) but I am going to HAVE to get that one. Amazing! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I saw your post over at Metamorphosis Monday.

      Thanks so much for checking it out! I’m not a huge app fan myself – I try to limit it to Feedly and Candy Crush – but this one was too good to pass up! Let me know how it works out – I’d love to see what you come up with!

    This is really cool! I’ve been wanting a watercolor of our new house, but yeah, they are pricey (and deservedly so!). With 12′ of snow in the forecast, I think I will wait for spring, too!

      When spring comes and the flowers start to peek out we’ll both take house shots…. then you show me yours and I’ll show you mine! lol
      Thanks for checking out the blog!
