Modern Bird Studios $200 Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

Happy Monday, ladies!
I'm so excited about this Monday Giveaway from Modern Bird Studios, today!
If you've never heard of Modern Bird Studios, then here's a little bit about them:



Modern Bird Studios creates personalized, modern art from your photographs. Each work is a one-of-a-kind, original studio piece created with a combination of digital, hand, and painting processes on an Oak composite, or, for the extreme modern enthusiasts, on acrylic, mounted to Oak.

At first glance I thought that this was just a really cool canvas print, but in fact, it's an amazing piece of art!  These prints have the coolest texture, and color layering done on wood!

You can check out the Modern Bird Studios portfolio page, to see all the fun different color combinations that their clients have requested.
Here are a few photos turned works of art, that are my favorites!



They have TONS of different colors to choose from when you order too.

I think that picking a color combination was the hardest part about getting one of my favorite pictures turned into a Modern Bird... so many choices, ah! lol :)
Check out what Megan and her amazing hubby, Gregg (the artist) did for me, once I finally made up my mind! ha!


This was the original photo, I loved it!
But I had wished that the colors of her dress matched her room more...
You know me and wanting photos to match room decor... gah!

So I was thrilled when Modern Bird told me that they could alter the colors of the photo in lots of ways, once turned into one of their awesome masterpieces!

The colors I ended up choosing were:
Shock White
Frozen Strawberry
and
Roof.


Although, I was sent lots of variations of it, so I could see what tones of these colors I wanted!

The thing I love most about this modern print is that it's different.  Not a canvas, Not a regular ol' photo... it has tons of character, and it really IS a piece of art, and not JUST a photo!
Okay... so now that I'm done gabbing about how amazing MY print is... here's a chance to win one of your own!!!:

  5. Their work is incredible! I love those 3 that you showed and the very last one the best. That bike picture is just too cute!

    I've started my own little collage wall and just keep adding to it whenever I thrift new frames or find a picture that I like, so I'd definitely add my picture to that.

  145. 137comments! I'm thinking you've probably quit reading them all and will choose someone from the first 50 comments. :) Nonetheless, I have this great wedding of my grandparents (who were, by the way, THE greatest grandparents a person could have) that I'd love to put in my front room, but I'm bored by the idea of just matting and framing it. This would be a fabulous way to display 2 of my greatest heroes in a prominent spot in my home!
