Beach Printable Using Favorite Image App

Good morning friend! I just discovered the coolest app for my Android and can't wait to share it with you! So grab a cold drink and your phone and get ready to play around with your favorite images!

I'm maybe the slowest person to jump on any new media train...I'm also rather OCD about adding apps to my phone. I'm afraid if I have too many, they'll just clog up my phone with their constant updates and slow me down. I already have trouble finding the one I want...so I try to keep it manageable!

I made an exception for this amazing app...I'm sure it's been around for ages and maybe you're already using it like a pro...

...but just in case you aren't, imagine this...

...your favorite image

...transformed to a watercolor...

...in less than 60 seconds!


If that isn't enough to grab your attention, did I mention that it's FREE?! The app I'm talking about is Photo Painter (this is similar to the Waterlogue App for IPhone) and I'm going to show you how I quickly transformed a beach photo and created a printable with my image.

First of all, this is the App shown here in the Google PlayStore (it's the one at the very top).




Here's how easy it is to use Photo Painter (and no, I'm not getting paid anything to endorse this app...I just love it that much! This post does contain some affiliate links(*); you can read my full disclosure policy here).

Okay, lets' talk through these 4 simple steps...

1. Open up Photo Painter on your phone and click the Edit button.

2. Scroll through your Gallery until you find the picture you want and click it.

3. See that little Easel button at the bottom of the screen? When you click it you will be given several choices of styles to choose from. For my beach picture, I selected Color Wash.

4. Now simply watch the Painter render your picture. It will start off with either squiggles or dots and then fill it in. It also tells you how many drawing strokes are left before it's complete.

Let's take a look at the before and after to see just how my image changed:

Isn't that cool?! You can experiment with other tools as well for a different look every time.

I then uploaded my image into PicMonkey* and added a line from the poem 'Down on the Shore' that suited the image.

Once I printed it out, I trimmed it a little and then used a magnetic bull clip* to hang it from one of my chalk painted trays.

It's such a simple way to create personalized artwork using your very own photos!

You can bet that my creative mind has thought up several more uses for this fabulous app, which I will be certain to share with you as the weeks go by.
