I've recently had a few of my readers ask where I find all of my graphics and photos for my blog. The truth is, I pretty much take all of the photos myself. I'll use anything from my little point and shoot to my big DSLR, and many times even my iPhone. When I need a specific graphic design that I can't create myself, I go to this great site called GraphicStock. They have all of those awesome images you see on printables, website, social media banners and homemade invitations. They are the absolute best site to use when you need something unique for a creative project you're working on.
I'm going to show you how you can find graphics to easily make your own wall art, printables or even custom invitations. If you've never tried your hand at creating your own graphic art you'll see how fun it is! And the best part, no design degree required! This is super simple and I'll show you, step by step. We'll use a program online that's totally free and completely user friendly. So grab your mouse and lets get started!!!....
- GraphicStock get your free access here
- PicMonkey a free online photo editing site
- Inkjet/Laser Printer (or send it off to CVS to be printed)
To begin you're going to want to first set up your free accounts. It's easy; the usual deal - enter email, password and create user name! (I swear I literally have 10 pages in my planner of different passwords and usernames. It's insane right?!) Aaaanyway... now the fun part starts.
Go to GraphicStock.com and type a search for the floral wreath below. Download it in either jpg or png format. Don't to forget to take note where your downloads are saved.
Go to PicMonkey and login. On the top of your screen click on Edit. Choose Computer and upload your photo.
On the left side of the screen, choose Tt to add text.
You'll have a choice to use the default text choices PicMonkey offers or you can use your own installed on your computer. Play around with the options to center, enlarge or add color to the text.
Now chose one of the options on the top - center to save your photo. You can also share your new work of art to Facebook or other social media sites. Now that it's saved you can easily print it at home or send it off to be printed. A few places that accept files sent online are Staples, CVS, Walgreens and Office Max.
You've now finished creating your very own
