Creations, Design with PicMonkey, its a Hoot!

Super Boy and Big E were very excited about their first day of school last week so I quickly created these good luck signs for them in PicMonkey, using a variety of overlays and fonts

 

1st day of school

 

I have discovered that designing creations using PicMonkey is a great way to not only make cute printables, but to plan out painting projects as well

I want to paint something OWL for fall, so I played around with PicMonkey to see what I could come up with

within minutes, I had a cute little owl model created with different colors and overlays

Here’s the best part, you can try the design in different colors with just a few clicks!

I designed the Sun Sand Salt sign with PicMonkey

I want to make a new sign for the fall, here’s a mock up of what I’m thinking about

The black area is going to be painted with chalkboard paint so I can change the message

Do you like the moon and the black cat?

I guess it’s time to stop dallying and  pick up a paint brush!

Are you getting excited about all things Fall?

Juicy Details

here’s how I made the owl:

open PicMonkey and select design, then pick your canvas size

choose canvas color, then click apply

next go to overlays, click on geometric and select a shape

I started with circles to make the eyes, then added ovals for the body, triangles for ears, polygons for the feet and crown.  Remember the main shape will be color 2 and you can change the outline from transparent to a color by clicking on color 1.  Use the rotate icon to move your shape to another angle

Last I used the Dashed & Lined overlay to create the wavy lines for the breast feathers

    Oh so cute and a HOOT Jenna! I’m noticing owls everywhere these days and treated myself to an owl cake pedestal for some retail therapy recently. I miss the grade school years of my nephews, they’re in college now, all grown up *sniff*… You know I love your painted broom! )
