Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

Using Picmonkey to get Your Photographs Ready for Etsy

I am a huge fan of picmonkey, a fabulous photo editing program that I discovered a while ago.  It has all kinds of wonderful editing features that will make your photo's so much nicer.  You will love discovering all the different elements and the fun embellishments that you will enjoy with each click of the mouse.  

I used plain pink paper for the background, propped up against a cereal box.

My next step was cloning the pink to fill in the picture.

  I love this background, I use it for so many of my pictures. It does change the background color, but I   really think it looks great.  As you can see,  I also added my name to the bottom.

I love the dark edges of this one.

Sometimes the white is really neat to use. it gives kind of a foggy appearance.

            You can frame your pictures if you like.  There are so many great frames 
            to choose from.

Add Photo Corners so that your photograph is ready to place in an album.

This is a really dramatic looking background.

If you are not satisfied with your background color it is easy to change as 
you can see. Check it out for yourself ~ it's awesome!!

Thanks for posting this! I've been trying to figure out how to do some things with pictures for a new etsy banner, and my photo editing software is just too complicated! LOL!! This might be just what I needed! I'm going to play around with it a bit and see what happens!

I also think your dolls on art mannequins are adorable!
