How To Make Valentine Subway Art with PicMonkey

I love PicMonkey because it's really easy and fun to use.  Best of all it's free!  I use PicMonkey for editing pictures, but you can do so much more with it like making your own printables.  I first saw subway art on Pinterest and learned how to make my own using PicMonkey

Start by going to PicMonkey's free online photo editing site.

Once you're in PicMonkey click on "Create a Collage."

Click the "X" in each of the the white boxes.  This will give you one white square.
Click "Edit."  A pop-up window will open.  Select "Open In Editor"

Now you need to format your printable to be rectangular instead of square.
Select "Crop" from the edit menu.  I formatted it to 8x10 with the actual size of 1600 x 2000.

Now use the Text feature in the edit menu.  Select "Tt" for Text.

Click "Add Text" and start typing.

Once you've typed some words, you can play with font styles, colors, and sizes.

You can even add some Valentine hearts.  The butterfly icon will give you a choice of overlays.

When you are finished, hit "Save."

PicMonkey is a great place to get creative because there are so many things you can do with it besides editing photos.  I've even made my own labels.  (Go here to find out how)  If you've never used PicMonkey before, I hope you'll give it a try.
