I pin them on my own Pinterest board I named "Quotes" (creative huh?). I follow lots of other pinner's boards who seem to be more creative than me and name their boards cute names like:
Wisdom and Wit
Letters upon Letters
Words, just words

Have you noticed all of the
pretty chalkboards on Pinterest?
I wanted to learn how to do it.
|Not quite centered, but a good try!|
My camera is a very inexpensive but reliable 5 year old Kodak EasyShare C813 that our business uses to take photos of empty, vacant and most of the time "stinky" houses. It is a dirty job. Since the companies we work for require a date stamp, that option is always turned on (because I forget to turn it off). Recently I had to learn how to go into picmonkey and cover it up. You can see it in my previous posts, the date stamp is there in my photos, in bright yellow, in the corner, or it has been pasted over with a bright purple daisy. I was so proud when I learned how to fix that.
|You can right click on this image and "save as" to use mine!|
Then I opened picmonkey and selected "edit a photo", then uploaded the chalkboard image.
Then I went to the overlay option on the menu on the left and chose my overlays, you can see the tree I have chosen.
Then I moved onto the Textures option and chose the "smudge".
This fades the text and blends it all together. Be sure to select the apply button afterwards to save your work. Then I saved it to my computer.
Whew, my first attempt....
