Need Color? Get Akvis Coloriage

You probably already know that I love vintage illustrations. I have quite a collection of awesome antique black and white illustrations that need just a little color to make them pop!

A few days ago my husband said that he wished we could color old vintage illustrations. So I got to searching on the internet and found Akvis Coloriage.

It is incredibly easy to use! I have had some incredible illustrations that I have just been itching to recolor. I've tried coloring them by hand with colored pencils, which turned out okay, but I'm totally loving this program.
Look at these cuties before:




Voila!!! Abracadabra! Presto Chango!






After: They look great don't you think? I need to rework the little girl, cause she's not there yet, but still, I think she looks pretty darn awesome if I say so myself!

Check back soon you vintage image lovers! I will be making a AKVIS Coloriage Tutorial, if I can tear myself away from coloring, that is!


Until next time,

  19. Hey! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I'm
    trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!
