Going Watercolor with PicMonkey

Hi Friends~
Hope you're week's off to a great start.

Recently I cut a few long stems from my garden to bring inside and enjoy.

Lovely blooms of pink, red and yellow.

Using my photo programs, I created a pretty watercolor of this bouquet.

I use PicMonkey, or for quicker edits, PhotoScape.

Each has it's own specialties.

Here's another idea~

The photo was a little blurred.

  But perfect as a watercolor.

Lastly, a little bouquet of knock out roses.

From real to watercolor.

These watercolors were all completed using PicMonkey.
If you use this program and do not know how to get this look,
open the edits section under Effects then scroll to Posterize.
I had to experiment a lot to find this for watercolor. 
You would never think posterize would contain this edit, but it does.

From there you can raise of lower the percentages and degree of the changes then save your work.

In PicMonkey, 
I have the Royale version
 which is a pay ever two years program, but I'm not sure the free program has this edit version for watercolor.
You can try and see.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
