Amazing Apps

I have a rather large amount of apps on my iPad and I seem to use the same ones most of the time, Snapseed being my most used app. So I’m trying to break out of my app inertia and try different ones.
Decosketch is one I’ve had for a while and not used much. It’s a little complicated (well for me anyway) with a wealth of different brushes, colours and styles that can be used. So I broke it out yesterday and started to play.
Chose a square canvas and then a background colour, picked out a couple of brushes and a colour and just starting making strokes, for some reason the colour of the brush kept changing on its own from grey to black and a deep red. Liked it anyway so I just kept going.

I then uploaded this to Glaze, another app I don't use often enough. Glaze gives photos a painterly look.

Then I uploaded to Alayer a relatively new app in the app store which I’m liking a lot.

Blender was my next choice.  Added some text with different blending modes.

And that's the finished picture, I may add some more to it over the next few days, it looks a little unfinished to me.
