Looking Back at 30 Paintings

Pin It
30 Paintings in 30 Days
"My Favorite Things"

Here is my "collage" of the 30 paintings I completed in January. I created it with an on-line program called picmonkey. Just go to PicMonkey and select "create a collage". You can use one of their designs or you can design your own. To make a collage with 30 photos you will need to design your own. Then you can drag your uploaded photos in to the collage until you are done. 
It's a fun tool to use. You can change the width and color of the grid lines between the photos and then save the completed collage as a jpeg on your computer. Post your collages here!

Help!! I tried to do the 30 day collage in "create your own" but I couldn't get the cells to work correctly...they just created long rectangular side by side images...can anyone help me with this???

When you drag the photo in to the square a small gray line pops up. If you do it slowly you will see that you can drag your photo below another one which wlll allow you add additional rows of photos. This will cause the photos to become squares instead of long rectangles.

I couldn't figure out how to make 30 squares instead of 25 on picmonkey site. I did complete all 30 paintings. A great challenge and a great accomplishment. Thanks, Leslie! I'll definitely stay in touch!

I think these are our fingerprints. Each one similar but individual to us and our tastes and color choices.
