Have Your Photos Turned Into Art! My Own Art Giveaway CLOSED

I love photography. You probably already knew that! My home is full of pictures, mostly ones that I have taken myself, and it always will be. While I'm good at basic editing of my photos...I'm not a very artsy person. So when Elin Tidbeck contacted me to share with me what she did...I got all giddy! Let me tell you why...

Elin's background is in landscape architecture and has designed some really cool public places. Since she lives far away from her family in Sydney, Australia with her husband and two boys...she was in search of something she could do from her home and make it work with her family. Enter My Own Art. She uses her knowledge of Photoshop and her hobby of "artistic" things and she transforms your ordinary photo into wall art.

Just take a look at what she did on two pictures of my boys!
My Own Art - Before & After
I just love them! How absolutely original and unique...and so far beyond my skills. Elin was absolutely wonderful to work with. She had browsed my blog and Flickr page and suggested 2 pictures. I chose a different picture of Ethan from the set, but she had a vision of using the wheat in Ethan's picture too and I just love them! They are truly works of art, it looks like someone painted them and I think that's so neat! She was absolutely wonderful to work with and very efficient.

Elin is offering one of my readers a custom illustration. Just in time for Christmas! How wonderful of a gift would this make, I think I will be asking her to create some more art for gifts for my family!
