5 Days – 5 Photos: Creating Fairy Magic

I have been selected by Jennifer Nichole Wells to participate in the 5 photos – 5 days challenge. What does this mean for you, dear readers?

The challenge rules: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and tell a story about each photo.  The story can be truth or fiction, poetry or prose.  Each day one must also nominate a fellow blogger to participate in the challenge.”

Day 4: Believe in the Magic of Fairies and Make Some of Your OWN


It is easy to paint pictures with words. Today, I share how to make fairy magic on your photos!

This is the untouched photo I used to create my fairy magic photo.

I used PicMonkey and added the dark edges first. The dark edges enhance the sun behind the trees and give the image a magical appearance. Then, I added the words. To finish off the effect, I used a “space” texture to give the photo its mystical glow.

PicMonkey is a free and fun way to add magic to your photos. Have fun and get creative!

Today, I would like to ask Maniparna, from Scattered Thoughts to join in this fun and creative challenge. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us!

Thanks for visiting. I will see you tomorrow,

  1. Picmonkey is the best! Your picture looks quite magical- it’s very cool how you can create that look and completely change the original picture. 🙂

  2. Great result. I have photoshop but it is too complicated. I’ve tried some others and use Canva.com for social media stuff but haven’t tried pic.monkey yet. When I’m done with the series I must have a play. Thanks for the magic and for the post!

    1. They both do a few different things that the other doesn’t. I have used both on my photos to achieve cool results. I guess I do use PicMonkey more now than FotoFlexer. I think both are great. 😀

  3. I love PicMonkey. It is one of the easiest programmes I’ve used, which is a bonus because I’m terrible at creating graphics and manipulating photographs! I want to learn more, tell myself I will, but I never get around to it. I’ll dig out an online course one of these days 😀 Thanks for sharing. I always love your graphics…especially of Silver <3

    1. Thanks, Mel. The cartoons of Silver are Bitstrips, a phone app that works with Facebook. If you get on there I will see you and design something fun for us. 💖

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
