Architectural-Type Drawings at the Click of a Button

Pin It!

Have you ever wished you had an 
architectural drawing 
of your home, beach house, or cabin?
It's so easy to get one for yourself!

We recently had a wonderful
vacation & we wanted a nice way 
to say thank you to our hosts.
We started by taking some pictures of the cabin
where we stayed. This was the best one . . . 

Then I hopped on over to
If you don't know about Picnik, you are really missing out!
It's like "Photoshop for Dummies" 
& I use it to make the most of my photos.
A lot of the effects/tools are free.
{Or a 6 month subscription is $19.95}.
I'm not being compensated to say this BTW.

ANYWHO . . .
I just downloaded the above color photo
onto the Picnik website, 
then went to the "Create" folder.
It looks like this . . . 
Click "Pencil Sketch" on the left 
& "ta-da" you have a piece of artwork.
Save it to your computer &
order a print from the photo shop.

By the way, 
the photo of the little girl was also
edited on Picnik.
This is what it looked like before . . .
It was cropped, lightened, softened, &
a white matt was placed around the edges.
What do you think?
