Time To Pin Your Love

No, I haven’t gone wacky. I know today is Groundhog Day.

Every week I participate in the Caturday Art Blog Hop. Sometimes it seems like the blogger who knows the most online photo editors wins. (Before you yell at me, I know you’re just trying to share the wealth and I thank you.) I have been using online photo editors since I started blogging in 2009 and have about a hunnert different sites bookmarked. I can tell you, 98% of them offer the same filters and templates. If you want to take the clutter out of your life, look no further than PicMonkey. I created my Christmas card in it and it’s got some FUNtastic features. What’s unique about it is you don’t have to apply the filter to the entire photo and you can erase parts of the stamps. It’s more than a one-click.

The postcard above was an old image from the archives that I’ve converted partially to black and white using PicMonkey. If you biggify it, you’ll see by using the eraser on the stamps how it looks like I’m holding the roses and how I almost look 3-D popping out of those large hearts. You’ll also see that TW forgot to fill in part of a stem. We’ve proven that you don’t need designing skills to do something like this. Why am I showing you all this?

PicMonkey has a new contest. I’ve got the 311 right here.
