When I saw this idea on Measuring My Life in Love, I knew that I had to do it.
So I downloaded Picasa and got a flicker account (that's right, we didn't use either one). I headed straight over to Leo Reynold's photostream and went to his letter collection. He has hundreds of individual letters that he has photographed, and you can use them if you abide by his restrictions. I spent a couple of hours looking through all of his pictures...I had a blast! I chose to use the large size, as I didn't want the the images to be pixilated and blury.
After picking out the letters, and getting Hubs opinion, I went to the folder they were in on Picasa.
Then I clicked the collage button and chose the grid option, so the letters were put in rows and coloumns. We wanted to make this large, but only your standard sizes were available. I chose the 4x5 option so that when I had it printed on a 16x20, it would be proportionate. The letters were used more than once until I changed the size.
After arranging them on the computer, I saved the collage.
Hubs and I were going to make a frame for it out of old trim or molding and paint it red. But then I found this awesome frame at Michael's, it was just what I wanted, on sale AND I had a coupon.
