Word Collage

Hello Everyone,
Or maybe I should say good afternoon/ evening. Sorry that I am
posting so late today. The reason for being so late today is that this
weekend I was a little under the weather. I caught some type of
stomach bug so today I was playing catch up.
Earlier in the month I talked about taking a little different direction
in my blog and my creations. I talked about how you would be seeing
some gradual changes. In my header picture is a word collage that I
created. It seems that Subway Art and Word Collages are the in thing
right now. I took a good look at these different art forms and thought
to myself how could this be done without spending a lot of money.
This is what I came up with
As many of us paper crafters we have an assortment of stamps so I
took out all my word stamps and some Staz On ink and I just started
stamping on some scraps. I then moved on to and 8" x 11.5" white
cardstock. Here is a closer look at it. As I thought about it more I wasn't satisfied with it just being on
cardstock because that limited me to what I could use it for. Since
I have a scanner I scanned the page. I then printed my design to
tracing paper. (Tracing paper is a little heavier than tissue paper.)
Now with it on the tracing paper I could do all kinds of things with it.
I put it on a frame. It wasn't completely dry and I didn't want to mess
it up by moving it to get a picture. I'll show you what it turned out like
another day. With there being so many talented people out there and the in
thing changing so fast I want to try and help those out there that
are on limited budgets to be able to create by thinking outside the
box and using what you have. I hope that this helps others keep up
with the ever changing craft world.

Deb, I know you love your words but your words sing. Not like my words they just sit there. Thank you for the nice words. Stay warm and be safe.
