Add photos

Go to PHOTO tab and choose needed photo from your gallery or make a new one. You can add photo by clicking on it or move it to the artboard or clicking on "+" icon. Then set needed size of your photo.

Add stickers

Let's add some paper sticker from PAPER set.

To change layers order and to put the sticker under

the photo, press a brush icon in the left bottom corner, and then click on "up-down" arrows. 

Then we tap a lock icon to block this layer.


Add text

In FONT tab you can choose any font you like and add your own text on photo. You need to buy access to all new and old fonts for 2,99$.


In this collage we choosed Courier font.


To change distance between letters and lines, hold your finger on text and move right-left to change letter spacing and up-down to change line spacing. To change text color or opacity, tap the brush icon on the left bottom of the screen.

Final touch

To an empty space we will add some lettering from
Autumn Set 2018. 


To enliven your collage, you can add paint splashes from Splashes set or "glue" photos on a background with washi tape from Washi tape set, or add some drawings from Hand Drawn elements set.
