First I want to wish all the Fathers a Happy Father’s Day! We hope to spend the day going to church, going out to lunch and then spending the afternoon with Pepper (the Golden Retriever) and family – either hiking or taking her swimming
So, for a present I decided I wanted to make the husband a Subway Art using some of words of his favorite things. First I was looking at making a Canvas Artwork, but ran into problems getting the words to fit correctly on PicMonkey ( http://www.picmonkey.com/ ). I use this site to add the Watermark (blog name) to the photos I own and post.
So, then I started doing some Google searching to figure out how else I could make a Subway art. I found a few references to Wordle ( http://www.wordle.net/ ). It is a pretty easy site to use (I do suggest you read their FAQs before you start out). I did save my word list in a document first so it was pretty easy to modify.
I was able to make and print out my personalized Subway art (in black and white) this morning – now I need to put it into a frame so I can give it to him.
Sorry for no pictures this time, but they are currently in the new phone (which I have to figure out to get them posted). I figured it was better to send out the idea now in case you wanted to make one and post photos next week.
And you add a comment if you get this? I tried to email a couple of posts to myself to I could forward them to a friend and I realized I never got them. Not sure if it is our email account with the problem or if the posts are hiding from people. thanks!
Later – H
