Postcards

Challenge - to turn my photos into postcard style images.
Why? - to learn how to use free editing tools online and to make my photos more interesting and engaging
I used Paint, PowerPoint, Picture Manager, FotoFlexer.com, BeFunky.com and PicMonkey.com to manipulate the original images. I liked the challenge because of the.
  1. Results - had wanted to do this for ages, had always put if off. Doing it was enjoyable and built its own momentum
  2. Surprise - Sometimes I surprised myself with an image I couldn't have imagined beforehand. I would never have got there had I not experimented
  3. Perseverance - not every image worked, I failed half the time, but I still produced ten images I was proud of. Lesson - failing is fine, you learn from it
