Warhol Family Portraits


I've been wanting to do an updated version of our Warhol style pictures for a while now...and I finally finished last night.  I know a lot of people are partial to silouettes, but I guess my version of that is a Warhol-esque portrait.  B and I have the older versions of these portraits hanging in our bedroom, but I wanted to use pictures that are more recent and I've been wanting to do one for all 4 family members. 









I'm not 100% satisfied with the colors and I think I may use a different picture of Lamp, but overall I like them.  I do them on the computer using photoshop then print them off on glossy photo paper.  They're actually very easy to do, and I'll try and get a tutorial up in the next few days.  I went ahead and printed them off and put them in the new frames I bought.  Just having the frames up gives me more motivation to fix them until I'm completely satisfied.  


The hooks were originally put up for a different set of frames, so they're not really lined up correctly, but when we're only going to be here a few more months I'm not going to stress about it and put new holes in the wall.  The pictures along with the new pillow covers I was finally able to make give our computer/TV room just the punch of color it needed.

  3. Chelsea and Heidi--Thanks guys.

    And Heidi--great idea. Perhaps I will make this available in the shop. I'd still put a tutorial up, but for those of you who struggle with double clicking as you say, this would be great. :)
