Today’s blog post is a little different, I’ve put together a video tutorial (instead of just written instructions!) to show you how to make your own monogrammed desktop background/wallpaper/screensaver for your computer, laptop, iPad, tablet or iPhone!
How to make a monogram computer wallpaper
This is one of the first video tutorials I’ve filmed so please forgive me if I say ‘umm ‘a few too many times, I was a little nervous! Also, if my accent sounds a little funny it’s probably because I’m Australian 🙂
To enlarge the screen of the video, click the square icon in the bottom right hand corner of the video (it will say ‘full screen’ when you hover your mouse over the icon).
Other ways to customise your wallpaper
- Add your name instead of a monogram
- Add clipart to the circle instead of a letter (a good place to find this is Etsy)
- Add a quote
- Add a photo over the top of the background
- Or leave the background as is!
If you like the wallpaper I made in the video, you can download it by right clicking the image below and choosing ‘save as’ – you can then open the image in Canva and add your own monogram, name or other wording of your choice:
The font I used in the video was called ‘Playfair Small Caps’
