Corel Paint It Review and Giveaway!






CLOSED
Hi Neighbors,

Had a beautiful day today and thought I would take a minute here At the Fence to share another product. Corel Paint it! I received the Corel Paint it! program and was really impressed. You can take any of your photos and turn them into artwork or paintings. I loved seeing pictures of my family as a pencil drawing, pastel, or oil painting. These are just a few of the choices you have to choose from. Just pick your photo, choose what style you would like and then watch Corel create it right before your eyes. My daughter thought this was one of the best parts, watching the picture change. And you can save the picture and use it for other projects, maybe a calendar, framed photo for your wall or put it on a mug or t-shirt. The options are endless. You can also add your own effects with the different brushes and pattern pens. This program would be really great if you have a creative teen. My 13 year old played on it for hours, changing pictures and adding special effects. I am adding some of her finished pictures here for you to see. Another way you could use this is if you scrapbook. Imagine the photos you can create and add to your scrapbook.

Hi! Thanks so much for convoing me on Etsy. I love your blog. The Corel review is awesome! I just became a follower! I think that all of your daughter's projects look great but if I had to pick just one I would say #5! I think that I would used Corel Paint it for all sorts of things. Scrapbooking, Card making, Photo Editing and Banners just to name a few.
