Pointillism Paintings on Canvas
With AKVIS Points you can change a surface for your pointillism painting. It's possible to apply a texture of crumpled paper, brick wall, wood, or others.
In the Decoration group switch to the Canvas tab and enable the Use Canvas check-box.
Hint: You can drag the Canvas/Frame/Text tabs to change the order of the application of the decoration effects.
