Create a painterly look with photographs...

Creating a painterly look with a photo is easy with Alien Skin Snap Art! This is one of my favorite ways to add texture and dimension, while keeping the original foundation of the photograph. The latest version of Snap Art has wonderful effects and variations. Pointillism, one of the many painterly effects in Snap Art, creates dabs of impressionistic color which is a lot of fun! You can vary the brush length and even the canvas type. You can use code DEB0902 for a discount on any Alien Skin product.

A cool edge treatment adds the perfect finishing touch. I used OnOne PhotoFrame to add to the painterly look of this image. You can use code DEBSANDIDGE for a discount on any OnOne Software product. Creating a painterly look is mesmerizing, somehow relaxing, and a wonderful creative outlet.  Have fun painting! ~ Deb
