DIY Free Octopus Art

You can grab this cuttlefish at the Graphics Fairy

 Here are some photos I altered with the above graphic at the online Picnik photo editing program:
You see this print a lot nowadays, the cuttlefish.  According to the Graphics Fairy a lot of people assume it's an octopus, I know I did.
All photos are from Plasticland except the bottom right hand photo, which is a photo I took of some plates at Marshalls.

  I thought it would be fun to manipulate the photo with Picnik and see all of the different takes I could come up with for this graphic.  These are just a few I've come up with.  I'm sure the possibilites are endless!  I know you could, should you choose to, manipulate these into better looking images than I can! I'd love to see whatever you come up with!

  You could Mod Podge your image on the bottom of a glass plate, or even onto a serving tray. Or, you could download the print you made to a disc and take it into Staples and let them enlarge it to poster size.  Perhaps make cute coasters, which is what I think I'm going to do.  The 5th image down looks perfect for a t-shirt.

  I really like the third image down that I made/manipulated. I'm thinking about printing it out for my living room. Of course, I'll need to fix the spelling error on it first. Ha! I know it's not cuddlefish!

You, of course, may use any of the images I manipulated should you want to!

  1. Traveling by 4's by way of Liz's Time Travel Thursdays. 4's because my link is 74. I had to stop and look up cuttlefish. Very interesting mollusc. I used to have parakeets and always had a cuttlefish bone for them. Didn't know it comes from this "fish". Isn't it fun to alter photos? You have some great for yourself and others there. I didn't notice the typo on the one photo -I'll have to go look at it just for grins. Thanks, Jenn

  2. Jenn,
    I had no idea you could feed a parakeet a bone! I learn something everyday.:)

  3. Great job! Pinning now and will definitely be printing later!
