Techniques used in this design: Applying textures to graphics

Create this look:

  1. Open a photo in the PicMonkey.com Editor.
  2. From the Graphics icon on the left, go to Whimsy > Star Signs. (We used Scorpio Star Sign).
  3. Add a Star Sign graphic.
  4. Make the background color of the graphic transparent using the Graphics palette.
  5. In the Layers palette, select the graphic and open Textures (the mesh diamond icon on the left).
  6. Select a Texture to apply to your graphic (we used a Glitter texture). Click Apply.
  7. Adjust the Fade slider to 0%, adjust the size of the texture if you want.
  8. Repeat steps 2-7, adding as many stars as you desire.

Your project is complete! The design automatically saves in Hub, our cloud-based storage platform. You can now share your gorgeous post to Instagram, or anywhere else you want to impress.
