I absolutely love that you posted this. I use Picnik too but I haven't explored it enough to make the Collage look ;)

Thank you pretty ladies!
This is such a great tutorial! Thanks for sharing; going to try it now.
ps to everyone, I THINK this is a 'premium' feature so you can't access the collage option unless you've paid for a membership!...but it's only about $25 for a year!
