If I were to paint.....




I am fascinated with altering my photographs. I would love to paint and always wanted to but my works of art were questionable at best. The amazing photography programs that are available are just plain fun to experiment with. PicMonkey was my choice this morning.

This photo becomes a painting.
The photo of the peony looking out the cabin window changes as well with some of the effects and textures found in this free program.



Each time I visit this program, there is a new effect to try. I just experiment and I know I should write down what I have done but I always forget!

Lovely flowers! I have enjoyed those special effects at PicMonkey, too. However, I'm afraid that any painting I would do could pass for a child's! lol Happy sunday!...hugs...Debbie

These are beautiful Carol. I love the daisy one with the way the green turned to turquoise.

Carol, they all turned out wonderful. I should return and play if I didn't have so much to do because I've already been playing too much. What a beautiful day this is. Hope that you are enjoying it!
