I have not done a What I Love Today post in well over a year…and I miss them. I miss the days when blogging for me didn’t require deadlines, and running around like a chicken with my head cut off. It was just posting what I felt like when I wanted. And I do still do that, but it’s much more intense than it used to be. Which is a good thing for me because my blog is taking me in places, I never thought possible, and given me opportunities I only ever dreamed about. I love what I’m doing, it’s just not the same and not quite as simple as it used to be, but that’s ok. I can do both. But I think it’s high time I reminded myself of my word of the year. Simplify. Simplify. Simplify. So I’m going to try to post more about some of the things going on in my life (I know, I know I’ve said that before…but I’m really going to try harder to do this). And I’m also going to post more of the things I’m loving at the moment. My What I Love Today series used to leave me feeling inspired, so I’m going to try to do more of them.
I actually got inspired to go back to this series when my mom told me she was hosting a link party for photo apps. And as many of you may know, one of the things I love so much is Instagram. I love taking photos with my iPhone and playing with apps…I love how simple it is to take a photo from your phone, then transform it into an amazing image with the point of a finger, then get to share it with the world. I love this SO much. Instagram is such a more intimate way to connect with my internet friends and readers…you get to see so much more about who they are…I love the informality of it all…the no pressure…and all the visual beauty.
Anyway, lately I’ve been playing with the new app, Waterlogue. Have you heard of it? If you’re on Instagram chances are you’ve seen it! Waterlogue is an amazing app that takes your photos and turns them into watercolour paintings. And it’s 99 cents. Crazy cheap for a gorgeous app. Seriously.
Look at this bowl of cherries…has a bowl of cherries ever looked more pretty?
Any guesses about what this one is? It’s pool water. I applied the Percolator App first, then applied Waterlogue and this is what happened. How fun!
And this is Ruby. My sisters kitty…she kind of looks like an owl here.
Anyway, I’m loving this new app…it takes a bit of practice to get the right image to work, but I always love a good challenge!
Have you used Waterlogue before? Do you have a favourite app?
