BlueBoat Photo Review and Giveaway


I love all things art. While I'm not very talented, my whole family are artists. My sister sculpts and paints, my mom is a painter, my dad is a photographer-through them I've learned to appreciate every artist I've come across and see the beauty in their work.
One amazing artist I've come to know is Leslie at BlueBoat Photo. She is so gifted, her work is beautiful! She is a photographer, but on top of that, she turns her photos into one of a kind works of art. Like me, she is a stay at home mom of two kids and she has utilized her skills into an awesome business and created her Etsy shop, BlueBoat Photo.She creates with her art Prints, Collections, Photo Reproductions, Cards and Paper Goods.

Leslie sent me a gorgeous piece for review. First, she wrapped the piece so beautifully and with great care-that's very reassuring when buying something fragile.She created a photo reproduction out of her own photograph of a flower and recreated it to look like an oil painting. and than behind the picture is a beautiful quote from Romeo and Juliet in a romantic script printed on ivory stock. She finished it off with a vintage matte and frame, both well loved and I think with a story of their own! The picture I took doesn't do it justice (clearly you can see I'm not a professional photographer!) Her work is stunning! The thought process that must go into this, it really says a lot about her as a person I think. I'm so thrilled to own such beautiful artwork, and I'm putting on my wishlist more of what Leslie has to offer at BlueBoat Photo.
Here is just a peek at what you can find at BlueBoat Photo:
