In truth, last week simply had too many exciting events to name, spanning the release of cool new clipart, to amazing galleries and tutorials. Read below to get up to speed on the best from last week.

Most Popular Photo on Facebook
The most Popular Photo of the Day on Facebook was this charming shot of the front entrance of a country house, shared by David (@shadowdvd). This photo earned 975 likes and 23 shares, and is a beautiful example of great editing. David used PicsArt to transform his shot into a fresco style painting, and in combination with the rose garden in the front yard and vine covered stone walls, it looks like a classical mural.
The Favorite Photo on Twitter
Twitter was aflutter with this shot, captured and edited by Camille Delahaye (@delacam). Camille’s shot of paint covered hands and forearms casting shadows on a cream colored background got attention with its elegant simplicity. Camille also edited in her watermark on the top left corner, to add her personal signature.
The Top Shot on Google+
Дмитрий Дешкин (@ddeshkin) was the PicsArtist responsible for the Top Shot on Google+. Дмитрий’s photo was a breath-taking landscape and still lake at sunset, reflecting the golden rimmed clouds from the sky above.
In our most recent Weekend Art Project, users were challenged to seek out and capture photos of arches and today we are announcing the top 10 contest winners. The contest attracted 1,081 entries, and after a weekend of lively voting, pretty little things (@prettylittlethings) won the day with her shot of the arches on London Bridge.

Stickers are one of the easiest ways to have fun on PicsArt and still do some pretty great things.
