This is a great, simple idea for scrapbooking, blogging, home decorating... and more!
You don't need to have awesome photo editing software, however, if you do, you are ahead of the game!
I do mine in Microsoft Publisher because it is one of my favorite programs! Open your picture on a blank page. Add either a textbox or a headline to your page. Choose your font and type your message. Move your text on top of your photo. Change the color so that you are able to see all the letters through your picture!
To save, use the select tool and select your entire image (picture and text) then group them together. Right click and choose 'save as image' (or something similar depending on your program). Save your image.
The possibilities are endless!
I use it for my Project Life Books... it makes it easier to keep track of my journaling cards!
