February 20 - wordle

Today I went to an Avid Divas get-together. We are a group of artists who share our work with each other. Sometimes we just do a show-and-tell thing and at other times we share skills and techniques. It's always a great opportunity to learn new stuff, and this one was no exception.

One new thing I learned today was about Wordle.

At the website - - you will see that "Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends."

Wordle is a terrific way to create images using words that you can then use in many, many applications, including cards, stationery, scrapbooking, embroidery, painting, etc etc

Here are some examples -
When I do my book entry for this topic I'm certainly going to have some fun with words.
