Title:  Postage Stamp Series 3

Medium:  Paint (Windows 7 Application)

Guess what?  I graduated!  Here is what may be the last postage stamp collage, at least for awhile.  Now that my schedule is much more open, I am hoping to do more daily crafts with actual stuff (paper, dirt, my hands, etc.) as a break from all of the digital art that got me through the semester.  Happy day, all!  🙂

Title:  Frabjous Alphabet

Medium:   Microsoft Word, Paint

I found the idea for this little project here.  While I do really like the “Love” picture in the original post, I wanted to see what the same concept would look like with other words.  It took me a few tries to get the right letter size and the needed number of alphabet repetitions for the word frabjous, which just happens to be one of my favorite words (I know, who’d have guessed, right?).  🙂  I did the letters and coloring in Word, then copied (via Prt Scrn) and pasted it into Paint for resizing and conversion to an image file.  Despite only having a few minutes this evening to work on it, I am happy with the way this little art piece turned out.  I think it would be neat to do a series of these with a variety of words, print them out, and mat/frame them for hanging around the house.
