Discover and save creative ideas
    Over the Christmas holiday, the kids and I did a lot of playing around with pictures of our family on the computer. We’re big fans of Picnik because it’s free and you can make a lot of funny faces with it. Have you tried the Gooify tool? Hilarious what it can do to facial features! …

      How to turn photos into coloring pages on Picnik. I want to try this on some of our class pictures. I think this would be so awesome to use for an end of the year project - a class coloring book for each kid!!!

      Great gift idea! DIY From Photos to Coloring Pages Picnik is closing on April 19th so you can look at this tutorial for the technique and then go to "Fotoflexer". Use the Sketch Tool there under Effects, and the Eraser tool to remove any background like shown above to achieve the same sketches from photos. Or you can use iPiccy, under their effects they have a very Picnik like sketch tool too.

    Cool photo lamp. When I did this years ago I went to Kinkos and had them print b&w; photos onto transparency paper then used mod podge glue to stick them to the inside of a white lampshade. Looked nice when it was turned off and so awesome when it was on! Thinking of doing it again with baby pics for Char's toddler room
