Sunday Sampler October 9

I had scheduled this for Sunday morning, but guess I missed a button! Here is YESTERDAY’s Sunday Sampler!! Oops!

Today’s Sunday Sampler began as scrapbook paper that I “grunged” 3 ways with Smart Photo Editor. Enjoy!

FREE APP FROM JIXIPIX

Here is a great FREE app for you to try (I got this last year). It’s from JixiPix Software, who makes great creative apps for both phones and desktop. Grab a FREE COPY OF HALLOWS EVE to create some spooky Halloween art! This is for DESKTOPS and is available for both Mac and PC.

Here’s an image I did in the app last year. I started with my own photo from a cemetery in Charleston, then added in some spooky features!

I love JixiPix apps for my phone (some are iPhone only, some are for Androids too). I purchased a few, then the past two years they’ve done a “12 Days of Christmas promo” and gave away some for free and some desktop apps at deep discounts. Hopefully they’ll do that again this year! This image was done with Vintage Scene:
