a saturday afternoon picnik.

want to go on a picnik? :)
I got a few questions about my picnik'd photos so I thought I'd share how I made this picture:
and next week I'll share another.

P1023404

Start:
1start

Edit - Autofix: I autofix everything! sometimes it makes an amazing difference & sometimes it makes it worse, that's what the undo button is for.
2autofix

Crop: I used the square, but you can do whatever you want
3crop

Click Create:
4create

Click Effects - then I chose the Gritty setting:
5gritty

Then I chose to make it black and white:
6b&w

Click Stickers:
7stickers

I chose hand drawn hearts:
9heart

Stretch the heart to the size you want:
10stretch heart

I then adjusted the color to white, the mode to screen, and then faded it:
11fadeheart

Then click text - I wrote me in joyful juliana:
12text

text - & in robot teacher:
14text&

text - you in joyful juliana:
15textyou

Adjust the color of the "&" to the yellow, and chose the overlay mode:
16color

Adjust the color of the Me & You to a dark grey and fade:
17color

Click Save - and here you can adjust the size so if you were making a blog header & you know your blog width is 1000 you can adjust your photo to fit!
18save

before&after


Do you have any photos you've picnik'd that you'd like to share??
What if I did a weekly picnik link up, would you participate??

Just stumbled across your blog, and I'm so glad I did! I use Picnik but have never been this creative with it - so thanks for sharing! I'm in need of your tips and will definitely be putting them to use :)

I love this post, Kels! I would love for you to start a linky party for Picnik! Would it look like this post or just posting before and after pictures of picniked pictures? I really need to get the full version!

I don't really understand what a link up is, but I'll definitely Picnik!
