My New Toy . . .



I'm probably the last person in blogland to discover this but I've found Picnik !!! I've been having so much fun playing around on the site!! I've been trying to figure out how to make my photos look better and bigger pretty much since I started blogging a couple of years ago. The more perusing I do in blogland, the more I realize my photos are not up to par and photos are what I love the most about reading other peoples' blogs. Recently, I discovered a wonderful blog that is written by Brenda at Cozy Little House . Every so often, she writes tutorials about how to make your blog look prettier. The other day, she wrote about how to create a collage banner by using Picnik. Between her instructions and photos and Picnik's ability to make things seem so easy to do, I actually was able to create a new banner. I'm so happy with how it came out!! It doesn't look centered on my computer but my husband said it looks centered on his. At this point, I'll keep it the way it is because, knowing my luck, I'd screw up the whole thing entirely. : )


So tonite I was playing around on Picnik with a photo that I took of Megan the other day. It's not one of my best photos but I figured I'd use it as my "guinea pig" photo. I had a blast using all of the different things they have to edit your pics!! The above pic is what I came up with. The below pic is the original photo.





I know my first attempt isn't perfect and the quality of the photo wasn't so great to start out with but, I have to tell you, I'm pretty impressed with myself and can't wait to work on other things!!! YAY me!!!!! : )




Many blessings ~ Wendy

Thanks for your comment Wendy, and you can't be the last person because I recently discovered Picnik too.
What I love about it, is that I can often make a keeper out of an otherwise not-so-great photo!
(I'm partial to the text you can print on a picture too)

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog, Wendy...and no, you're not the last person to hear about Picnik. I heard it first right here! So now I'm the last person :-)

I've never used it - but looks like you're having fun! It's always good to find something to play with, at any age, isn't it!
Have a lovely weekend..
