Enhance Artwork or Photos
FireAlpaca is free but PhotoPad offers a license use. This is just what I use but luckily there many other free editors online.
Add a faded shaded frame around the edges of your photo/artwork called Vignette. Here is a before and after example.
Add text/fonts with encouraging words. This image has embossed and engraved effect with doubled layered fonts.
Blur the backgrounds.
Drive the colors. While black and white can have a dramatic effect, may images is see in contests the artist forgets or just doesn't realize the importance of driving the color saturation effect.
Saturation Color Enhanced
Add solid colors next to your photos and artwork that matches your pillow.
to mix and match solid colors by season or holiday.
There are many outsources to self promote under DelynnAddamsDesigns bio tab.
Also, see my press releases and blog for more great ideas.
I hope this helps.
