Mementos - Etsy Style

The other day I was sitting on the couch scrolling through Insta drooling over lots of feeds ripe with gorgeous shots of Indoors, when a cool digital design caught my eye. 

I clicked through and found Designs by Isabel Wild, where for a small fee (though her prices are going up!) your favorite snapshots are posterized in quite a classy manner.

Ever since I mentally committed to retiring Prair from jumping (regardless of her rehab), I've been dreaming up fun ways to commemorate some of our accomplishments in a slightly more organized fashion than the garage Ribbon Wall.  (though I assure you the garage ribbon wall is totally and completely indexed across several different data points.)

When I saw what Isabel was doing, I immediately loved the idea of having a trio of images done (in tri-color hues), then somehow framing them with one or two of our circuit awards...

Knowing me and my total-lack-of-crafting skills, it's unlikely that I'll actually execute that plan anytime soon - But in the meantime I can thoroughly enjoy these images, one of which has obviously already become my wallpaper on both my phone and computer. 

If you're looking for a great way to stylize some of your favorite shots, I highly recommend giving this a try - that is, assuming you aren't already a photoshop ninja capable of doing it yourself ;)



  1. I saw these on your Insta and LOVE them! I think they're absolutely beautiful, and each one captures Prairie perfectly :) Think I have to get one for Roger!

  2. these are so cool! i was going to say I love the last one, but honestly, they are all fantastic!

    1. That's why I couldn't pick just one! I kept finding more photos I wanted done :)

  3. These are really neat. Very cool

  4. This is awesome, and so cute!! I love them all, but I think that first blue one is my favorite. If you end up making some of these yourself, I'd love a tutorial! I've had owned several horses in my life and I would love a way to commemorate the ones that have passed or that can no longer compete.

  5. These are super cool. I'm really into art and graphic design, so this looks like the type of thing I would enjoy making. The bottom yellow one is my favorite - I like how it shows the relationship between the horse and the human so well. Please post an update if you end up doing any of these!

  6. Those images are incredible. I really like how stark the relief of the silhouette is, and those excellent bright and saturated colors. It makes a photo look like it could be a graphic or a brand's logo. It could easily be an iconic image. Would be fantastic to use as an invite to a special occasion like birthday or a save the date.
