Do you ever have those moments when you see something and you feel you need to have/make/do it immediately? For me this occurs on a daily basis, but I rarely have the funds or time to get on to whatever it is straight away and then it ends up on my forever growing to-do-list glaring at me each day I open my diary. Well today that is different!
I saw this print on Urban Outfitters and I got the sudden urge to make something similar with one of the pretty photos I took on holidays last October.
The photo is of the outside of the Chelsea Market in New York where we bought some amazing cheese, ate delicious brownies and sipped on iced tea. It was such a lovely place.
I used Illustrator to create the effects and played around with colours and opacity until it felt jazzy enough. I really like the way that the squares frame the pretty details of the building.
I think I might make a series of these images from our New York visit and print them on canvas for my wall – on the to-do-list it goes! Go on, give it a try with one of your photos!
