My Own Art GIVEAWAY!!!


I was recently contacted by Elin Tidbeck from the company My Own Art to see if I would be interested in reviewing her artwork.  After checking out her website, I knew that the type of artwork she creates would fit into any one's color scheme and decorating style! 
Elin was also gracious enough to do a giveaway on my blog so that one of my readers will win an original digital file of her artwork!  
Having the digital file allows you to to have the rights to make as many reprints as you wish at any size and on any media of your choice.  So that's really nice to have.  Printing additional copies would be a great gift to give family this holiday season.  I really liked having the option of either putting it on canvas or framing it.
So, with that being said, I will shut up now ;-)
 and just show you what I am talking about.
Here is what My Own Art does...
A beautiful picture turned into such a gorgeous piece of artwork!
And here is another one that I really like...

   What little boy or girl do you know that wouldn't love to have their pictures turned into such fun artwork? 

This one just made me crack up laughing!  How can you not giggle when looking at this?   I love when family portraits aren't too serious.

For the Star Wars Lover in your family! 
I just think any one of these would make an awesome statement in a room.  Don't you?  It would definitely be a conversational piece when someone comes in your house.  It adds so much character to your own personal space, whether or not you put it up in their bedroom or playroom or out in the family room for everyone to see.  I know the kids will get a big kick out of it.   Mine already have. The artwork that Elin did for me has only been up a couple of days and my kiddos can't get enough of them!
Below is the one of the photos I sent to My Own Art and this was one of the pictures that Elin created for me...

I received my digital files from My Own Art and I had them printed to 11 x 14 inches to fit two matted 16 x 20 frames that I purchased at Target.
I know this couple is so cute and winter ready, but they had to go to make room for my babies :-) 
I tried Target and CVS for printing, but they only go up to 8 x 10 and don't do special orders, so I ended up at Walmart.  I have to say, I was so pleased with their quality and price. 
I went with a matte finish and chose poster size.
 And here is how they look all snug in our home...
So now every time my husband gets to the top of the staircase, I hear him say, "My babies!"
Too cute!
