Be Funky Pic Monkey!

Are you wondering what I'm talking about, from my title?  Both Be Funky and Pic Monkey are photo editing websites that are fast becoming my greatest waster enjoyer of time.  Both sites are free, fun, easy to play with and don't require any personal details or registration.  What's not to like?!

This is me, in my new red glasses.  The amazing red glasses that allow me to seeeeee!  Aren't the colours in the photo super?

And look at what you can do with one little ol' piano photo.  Immediately this creates an interesting picture that screams out for words, for a story.

"... she replaced the lid, slowly rose from the chair
and walked to the window.  She realised in that moment
that her whole world was about to tilt on its axis ..."
And what about this fabulous effect?  I love it!!  Would you believe me if I told you I painted it?!!!  You would, wouldn't you, because it does look like it was painted (hmmm, perhaps not by me) but no, just a couple of choices on Be Funky and voila!!  (Sometimes I think I couldn't speak without exclamation marks!!)
Have a play, I know you'll love it too.
And you can become a part of my very special Funky Monkey Club!!


  1. Oh my, you have been having fun haven't you?
    Love the painted effect and the red glasses look pretty funky too.

    Had a play with a funky little monkey myself, but at the moment I am excluded from Blogland as my photo storage thingy is full. So until I can sort that one (groan) I will be absent , boo hoo.
    In the mean time I can still monkey around I guess!!

    A little cooler here today and cloudy so I think we'll survive this week.Hope it's cooler where you are Trudy......

  2. Great effects!
    How have you been since Blogtoberfest, Trudy? I just wanted to let you know that I’m hosting another (albeit gentler and more introspective) blog challenge over the month of December called #reverb12.
    Would be so rapt if you joined us!
    There’s a little giveaway too. :-)
    Details here: http://isawyoudancing.blogspot.com.au/p/reverb12.html
    Take care

  3. I think this is going to be a new years resolution, to have a good and try and change some of the photos I pompon my blog! You can change the atmosphere quite dramatically! :)

  4. I am going to have a go, as I find it hard to find any regular photos of myself that I like. But who knows, with a little bit of editing ....

  5. Me too, I'm going to try this - maybe make some funky monkey Xmas cards!

  6. Looks like fun Trudy, just what I need, something else to eat up time on the computer!! I really like that painted effect, might have to go and have a play myself. Julie :)

  7. Be funky is one I haven't had a look at yet, so thanks for the tip! it's very effective. You are definitely a writer Trudy, you could carry on with the story here! Heather x

  8. Oh its so nice to see you! the glasses look fab :-) and I'm always fiddling round with my pics, just love it! the painting effect is a new one to me, very lovely x

  9. LOVE those piano pictures! They are full of stories.

    I use PicMonkey sometimes but I've not come across Be Funky. I have to limit my use of PicMonkey though as it makes me a lazy photographer and I think, oh, I can crop/fix/tweak that on the computer...bad habits! x


Thanks so much for leaving me a message!!
I love reading what you have to say : -)
