Word Art

Yesterday, I discovered Wordle.net - a place where you can create "word clouds" from random text, a blog, etc. You provide the words and Wordle.net provides the word cloud - in colors and fonts you can customize and in a variety of layouts. It takes a bit of getting used to, but the best part is, it is free!
I decided to create a word cloud using coffee terms - about 25 terms give or take a couple. It was easier using the advanced feature. I could control the words and their "weight" a lot better (and faster). In order to have a jpg file of your project, you need to take a screenshot of it. Otherwise, you can print it to a pdf file.

Of course, you could always print it out at home or take it to Kinkos and have them enlarge it but I thought having it printed on premium canvas might look better.  So, I hopped on over to Zazzle and created a custom poster with my new image. (You can go there to purchase it if you like). Then out of curiosity, I had it double matted and framed so see how it would look. I think it's a cute piece of "art" for our coffee brewing station! I might have to actually buy it later :)
