Typography Wall Art

So if you haven't yet, you need to check out this link.
I thought it was amazing.

I'm into graphic art and typography so I fell in LOVE with Leo Reynold's  letter collection on Flickr.

I was inspired.
Seriously... as soon as I saw it, the wheels started turning and I got to work.
That's how easy and quick it was.

It probably took me fifteen minutes (and the majority of that time was looking through all his fabulous pictures)

I did this one within twenty minutes of seeing the idea:

SO easy, I promise.

I don't have Photoshop or anything but I do have Picnik! (I adore that site)
I think you have to have the premium account to do collages (sooo worth it, guys) but that's what I did.
I simply opened a collage, found a layout that I could adjust with the amount of rows and columns I needed and then just dragged and dropped.

It took me a few minutes to find the colors and get them all in to make them 'go' the way I wanted them too. But there are hundreds of different textures, colors and arrangements of the letters on his site.
I just grabbed a bunch of each that I liked and played until I got what I wanted.

I did one for my mom too:
*the 'est' in the picture is from the original inspiration on Amy's site. I cropped it from hers*

and for my little guys room with just his name:

I'm in LOVE. Clearly obsessed.

THANK YOU Amy from My 3 Monsters for feeding my inspiration!

Guys, check her out and see the original beauty!



  1. Thanks Kelsey! I LOVE LOVE how yours turned out. It's pretty addictive, isn't it? Have fun crafting!

  2. I made one of those the other day. I used a few of the same images. :)So much fun!

  4. These look great. I'm hooked on this too. I've made three since Thursday. Thinking about doing more, but I don't want to go overboard in the house with them. haha

    Found you through your link-back comment on Amy's post. New follower!

  5. Did you print your collage. How large can you print the collage from Picnik and keep good quality. I read it was only 12x12 but I wanted to print a 20x30 like Amy.


Reading your comments makes my day!!! I'd love for you to leave me some love and make me smile :)
