Festive Fun with PicMonkey

MerryXmasAs you know we like a little bit of creative fun here at The Adoption Social, and we really enjoy using the website PicMonkey to design images. It’s especially fun around special holidays, when there is always lots of new applications to try out.  An now there is a great new application on there site, which allows you to create designs without editing a photograph, like the image above.

Here I’ll show you how to access the Design tool and use it, and as a way of inspiring you all to have a go we’re going to run a little competition. You can win  Three months of Royale Membership for Pic Monkey, which gives you access to all the tools the site can offer.

All you have to do is design a festive image using any of the PicMonkey applications, and share it on twitter with the Hashtag #TASFestiveFun, or email us at Theadoptionsocial@gmail.com with your image and email title TAS Festive Fun.

We can only accept one image per person although all family members are allowed to enter, so maybe let the children have a go.

The closing date is Friday 3rd January 2014

We will announce the winner on Monday 6th January 2014

 

Using The Canvas Tool

First Select Design from the menu on the front page.

A selection of canvas sizes will appear on your screen, click on your choice.

Then you need to select the background colour of your canvas, this is done from the Canvas colour box which appears on the left side of the screen.

Now you are ready to add your overlays, which can be found under the snowflake icon, at the bottom left side of the screen.

There are two theme options Winterland or Santa Land, both are lots of fun.

So some have some fun, experiment and let your creative side shine. 

My children have loved using this tool, so here is one they made earlier.
