DIY Monogrammed Desktop Wallpaper with PicMonkey

by katie
Ever see those great monogrammed desktop wallpapers and wonder how to make them yourself? I recently came across and awesome monogram font and instantly wanted to do one of my own. You won’t believe how simple it is!

The first thing that needs to be done is to download the font that you want to use. If you are interested in using the font I’ve used below, you can download it HERE.
Once your font is installed on your computer, you can begin by following the steps below. 🙂
Start by figuring out your screen resolution so your wallpaper will fit your screen properly. Right-click your desktop and select ‘screen resolution’.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Your resolution will appear where the arrow is pointing. Super simple, right?
On the PicMonkey homepage, select ‘custom’. There you will insert your screen resolution numbers.

If you are unfamiliar with PicMonkey, go to the overlays tab on the left hand side of your screen by clicking the butterfly. Then select ‘Your Own’. Select your desired background image or you can skip this step and use a plain color like I did.

Click on the ‘Tt’ tab on the left side of your screen. This will bring up the different texts. Select ‘yours’ to view your computer’s fonts. Select the font you’d like to use. First, type your last name’s initial or the letter you’d like to have in the middle.
Right-click the letter and select ‘Duplicate Text’ from the list. Another text box will appear. Erase the letter and add the other two letters of your choice.

After the next two letters are typed, resize them to be slightly smaller than the middle initial. 
I’ve chosen to fade the ‘A’ a little and then fade the ‘K’ and ‘L’ a little bit more to add depth and so you can see the individual initials.
The image below is the final look. 
Stay in the loop!

Thanks for this mini tutorial. I sometimes use Picmonkey but haven't explored it's full potential to be honest. This was really helpful. 🙂
