I finally decided on a very loose transportation theme for Reid’s room. I want the design to carry through for the next several years so I passed on the temptation to do strictly construction vehicles. For him, the next best thing is a Jeep or a race car.
There is not a day that goes by that he doesn’t spot a Jeep on the road. It could be a Jeep Wrangler or a Jeep Grand Cherokee. He knows the Jeep look.
I looked online and anything Jeep- related is few and far between.
So, on a recent Sunday we stopped by the Jeep lot before they opened. While the hubby stayed in the car with the kids, I ran around snapping pictures with my iPhone.
I found my two favorites and then added a couple of filters to brighten them up. They were taken using my Camera+ app. I love that it has so many filters to choose from.
I downloaded them to my computer and then had them printed on canvas at my local Walgreen’s. I have never had anything printed on canvas there and I have to say I’m super impressed. I used a 40% coupon making each canvas $20-something. I uploaded the photos online and picked the finished product up 2 hours later. How crazy is that?
The canvases are an inch thick which was a nice surprise. I chose the 16 by 20 size because the picture quality went down if I did anything too much larger. I did resize the pictures in Photoshop Elements first. I did it according to the sizing guidelines on the Walgreen’s site.
