Colonial Pictures

Here is 2 new Colonial pictures that I made up yesterday. I did a search on google for colonial pictures and then saved the images to my computer. Printed them out on regular computer paper and put them in the frame, and you can't even tell that they were printed out, they look like real pictures, and I saved a ton of money since these can go for big bucks.

I have never thought of this before. Now my mind is racing to think of what pics I would like to copy and frame!
Thank you for the inexpensive idea!

I will definitely be doing this. I have been on ebay and various sites admiring prints like this but they can be so expensive. Any idea exactly which site you were on to get these?

Those are awesome! I love the frames too:)

Good idea for those who do not paint.
A good trick to get them to look like real photos is to buy specialty papers and print them on that. The cost is minimum and they will hold up better to humidity and temperature changes.

Debbi said...

Amy, sorry I don't remember exactly where I got them, I just did a google search for colonial pictures and found them that way.

They are just beautiful.
I did that with President pictures and they turned out just as nice on regular paper....amazing you don't have to spend a fortune do you.

Hi Debbi,

I like your prints, too. How fun! And a great way to save a little $ for the look! I got my print on this site:

I have been wanting pics like this FOREVER! I found that they can be quite expensive just like you and had given up hope in owning my own! I googled like you said but am turning up nothing! Could you please share the link where you found them or the pictures themselves. I would so much appreciate it! I love your blog!!!!
Many Blessings~Judy
