~how to make a pencil sketch~

I saw this image on Pinterest the other day.
Sketches are becoming very popular in design, and I can see why.
They are very beautiful and create visual interest on your walls.


If you have a photo you'd like to turn into a pencil drawing, it's very easy.

Here is a photo of our house that I started with.
Make sure your photo is saved to your phone.


Upload it to any FREE pencil sketch app.
The one I used is called Sketch Splash.

You can pick which filter you like, save it to your phone, or email it to yourself.
From your computer, pick an appropriate size, and print.


Side by side for comparison:


Here is one I tried of a landscape and our lake we live on:


When printing, try using watercolor paper for a really cool look, even paper that has an aged
 color to it.
To take it a step further you can even add more depth by shading areas yourself with a pencil.
Frame it with a matte and hang!
Think of doing this as a gift for a loved one of somewhere special you went together.
They will think your inner artist is coming out!

xoxo

The club me and my boyfriend met at has just closed down, this would be such a lovely way to have a picture of it in our home without people thinking 'why do they have a picture of a club in their house?'!
