Online Freebie for August

Welcome to the start of a new month. It has been a busy few weeks but I will fill you in later but for now I am offering this month's online freebie.

Word Clouds are a group of words. They can be arranged vertically, horizontally, any old ways. They can be different colours or the same. Its about creating art with words.


As for us scrapbookers this is a great feature for our layouts. You can use the word clouds as the title, journaling or just as a great embellishment. You are only restricted by your imagination.

So how do you create these word clouds? Easy, visit http://www.wordle.net/, click on CREATE , then you will be prompted to enter a list of words. Finally click on GO. A beautiful word cloud will be created for you. You can change the colours and the alignment of the words by selecting from the LAYOUT, COLOUR, FONT options at the top or at the bottom you could try the RANDOMIZE option. When happy you can print your creation ready for use on your layout.

This is a great one. Give it a go.
