Cool App For Creating Watercolor Painting From A Photo

Hi there! I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

I discovered a really great app this week that I love so much I have to share it with you guys in case you haven’t stumbled across it yet. So I decided I would start a little series or category for sharing cool apps with you from time to time.

The app in question is called Waterlogue and it is stunning! All you do is upload a photo and it automatically turns it into a water color painting. No joke, it is pretty incredible.

I am a free app kind of gal so it is rare for me to splurge but I couldn’t resist the $2.99 price tag on this one. It has great reviews so I was pretty confident I would love it.

The app also offers lots of different styles and filters for your photo turned painting and saves it to your camera roll. You can check the website out here.

I think this app is really special because it allows you to use your photos to create unique art instead of buying a random piece or print to fill a space. I am passionate about using things in your home that you love and are special to your family and this app gives you that ability.

And if it keeps me from having to spend money buying artwork then that definitely makes me happy of course!

I can also turn an otherwise ordinary or uninteresting scenic or object photo into a really cool conversation piece.

After downloading the app, obsessing over it and posting my water colors all over Instagram I wondered how these would turn out if I printed them. So I sent my favorite one to Walgreens (of course) and here is the result:


The quality is not perfect but I do like the way it turned out. And if it is in a frame on a wall you won’t notice little details and may not even be able to tell that it isn’t a water color painting.


And here is one in a frame. This is obviously not the frame I would use if I were hanging it up but I just grabbed one laying around so I could show you.

This is a 5×7 print and if I were going to hang it on the wall I would matte it in white or linen or maybe even burlap and hang it in a simple white or wood frame, probably as part of a gallery wall collection.

But I do think it could even stand alone if I had a higher quality print.


So, what do you think? I hope you enjoy playing around with it as much as I have!

Also, I am not a tech person at all but it looks like this app might just be for iPhones and iPads but you will need to check.

Have a great weekend and I’ll be back soon with more office talk!
