Home Sweet Home #74

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  Check out my cow picture!  What do you think?  It sorta looks like a photograph but then look closer...

It has more texture.  

Here is a real close up.  I love how it turned out.  I just took a photograph and edited it in Photoshop.  I then mailed it into and I had a 18" x 20" poster printed.   I then used matte Mod Podge and decoupaged it to 18" x 20" canvas.  And there you have it, a cow portrait!   I used Uprinting because they actually can print something with perfect color and the right size.  I have used other printing services and had trouble with the product not looking like the original photo.  I had fun with it!  I think she is a cute cow!  

 Now, I would like to highlight some of the posts that caught my eye last week at Home Sweet Home.  I am adding a disclaimer that I may be pinning or tweeting your post by adding it to this party.  I like to share your great ideas when I see things that are exciting.

Anne at White Lace Cottage used a ladder n a really great way! 

Mary Ann at Classic Casual Home had a gorgeous bathroom remodel.

Erin at Just Grand showed off their adorable beach cottage with a newly remodeled outdoor shower.

Meeha Meeha  showed off how the living room was remodeled for a more beachy feel.

Debra at Common Ground showed off her beautifully decorated sun porch for the 4th.
