Just an idea...

Hey guys!

I was thinking... hm... LOL! Let's start from the origin.

Well, we're currently working with an interior designer who's making a great interior sketch for our new apartment. We show her the furniture we choose and she invents the placements of the pieces, the location, curtains, the ways ceilings and walls should look. My biggest inspiration (and simultaneously pain!!) was Arina's room. Well, just untill we drove to Moscow and I saw that awesome kids' furniture by Gautier. So DD's room is going to be pink with cream:


Okay... So now I'm making a series of digital painting for her room! I was thinking of pink elephants and hippos, giraffes and rabbits or even a funny snail withg moons and stars that look almost hand painted on canvas, adding texture and realistic brush strokes. So that I could bring them to the lab and print them on canvas like I did with my parents' room (I made two digital prints for them which were printed and framed and gave them as a present for their wedding anniversary).

So here's the question.

I got thrilled with the idea of making prinbtable digital wallart. Would you be interested in this product? Sure I can't find time to print them and ship, but I could sell them at my store at Scrap Orchard! I could sell them at a decent prices offering both personal and commercial use. Yup, commercial. The idea originated from my web search of the canvases I loved but couldn't find the proper size to print - or they all were different sizes. If I wanted to buy the item I had to buy the print and that was expensive... I thought that selling digital wallart would be an awesome way out - I could just bring it to my local lab on a disc and they'd turn it into a canvas! :)

So what do you guys think? I will be happy to know your opinions! :)

Hugs,
Irene

I think this is a fabulous idea! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Arina's room is awesome!

FABULOUS! Love wall art, because it is so re-positional, and changeable. This is great for military anh households with kids. I have bought some before, expensive :( , but my son was able to take with him when he moved out, so his apartment didn't look bare. You just always have such great ideas!

Sounds really interesting .... could you show us a sample of what you did for your parents?

YES YES YES!!! I would totally print things out to put on my room. :D You know... this would be an AMAZING custom order thing. You should charge significantly more than you do for your avatars though... and have a longer wait time on it. But I bet people would order! You're such a talented artist. :D
