Simple seasonal prints add a quick and easy update to shelves or mantel decor. I shared my newest watercolor-inspired printables as a part of the Celebrate Summer series on Today's Creative Life earlier this summer. If you haven't had a chance to stop over and get your copy, I'm sharing them here today.
Today I'm sharing a two summer watercolor-style printables with you that I created by editing a couple of my own photos from years past. One of the things I love most about digital photography is the freedom and tools to create a new image I can use in decorating or crafting that might look or feel completely different from the original photo, but is still my own vision.
Print out your favorite image and grab a clipboard or frame and few accessories for a quick summer update that will be easy to swap out when the seasons change. I found a sailboat to pair with the lake photo and some marbles and an over-sized jack for the bucket and shovel picture. I chose a black clipboard in place of a frame.

Wasn't that any easy update?
To create these summer images, I used a watercolor photo-editing app on my phone called Waterlogue, but many photo-editing programs have a variety of artistic filters and settings available. Experiment with some on your own photos and see what awesome art you can create using your own snapshots as a starting point. Adding text to your photos can be another fun way to create unique images for scrapbooking and social media. Most of all, have fun creating!
As always, I love to share my work, but personal use only please. For any other use, please contact me.
