Fun With Word Art

by Dotti

Knowing my turn to pick a monthly theme was rolling around, drawing ever closer on the calendar, I searched and searched my pea brain for some inspiration. Finally I found it while trolling the FOL Instagram account and Flickr gallery. Several of our followers enjoy using word art with their photos and use it to beautiful effect. I always love those photos!

So – let’s have some fun this month, shall we?

Let’s continue our Spring celebration but this month, let’s blend it with some word art. You can use favorite quotes, one word, phrases, your own words, whatever floats your boat.

And, I might add, this would be the perfect time to search for and share some favorite fonts. I’m sure we’re all always on the hunt for new fonts. Well, in my case, I haven’t hunted for new fonts for a while, I’m in a bit of a rut. But I plan to up my game, revisit my long neglected Pinterest account where I know I have a board for fonts. And ask you, our loyal followers, to share your favorite and newfound fonts with us in the comments – all month long!

My pulse is beating just a little bit faster just thinking about a month filled with beautiful Spring images and word art. I hope yours is, too.

Oh! Your photos needn’t just be the beauty found in nature, there are many other signs of Spring that we can celebrate, too, and enhance with word art.

So how about it? Are you with me? (To all our Down Under friends: feel free to celebrate your Autumn with Word Art and post in our galleries. It will be a great juxtaposition of art!)

This is great! I just have to find out how to do it (grin). And we badly need some signs of Spring here, this snow will not let up. Seeing your signs of spring lifted my day. I wish I could blink and be on the porch with you. Like "Bewitched." I'm blinking, I'm blinking. Happy week to you and the FOL gang.

Always a fun theme because I love words and quotes almost as much as I love photos! Looking forward to the month.

Lovely combinations of photos and words! My favorite is the last one!! Although I'm not on the porch, but out in my swing! Looking forward to seeing lots of beauty this month!

I have always loved adding word art to my photos so I was very happy to see this theme! Your photos and added words are the perfect inspiration and, as you said, there is quite a lot of inspiration in our Flickr gallery and IG feed. Can't wait to join in the fun!

Oh fun, I love adding word art to my photos. You inspire us all to step up our game to fancy up our images with some equally fancy words and fonts.
