#PHOTOADAY! Have you heard of #PHOTOADAY? It’s a fun way to share a picture on platforms such as Instagram every day. Chantelle of FatMumSlim provides the prompts for the popular #FMSPhotoaday project. Here’s a quick overview of how to play, and here’s the list for May!
APP HIGHLIGHT! Each month we highlight a fun photo app that you can use in conjunction with Instagram.
The app highlight for this month is the Masking Tape app for the iPhone and Android. Do you love washi tape? Or maybe wonder what washi tape is? If you don’t know, it’s a Japanese paper tape made in various patterns and colors that you can use for all sorts of crafting fun! Well the Masking Tape app transfers this fun and amazing crafting tape into fun digital tape! You can add fun “tape” embellishments to your pictures to kick up the visual fun! And at just $.99 it’s definitely worth the fun you’ll have playing with it!
