I’ve got a new Yahoo group dedicated to the Teresa Collins (Photocentric) Stampmaker and it is growing in members and resources. Currently we have a Valentine challenge going on and members can download a packet of 14 commercial use OK images in negative form for easy stampmaking. A low rez preview is shown below. To get the high rez versions join the group!
There are some great online tools to take your custom text and “heart-ify” it. For starters, the following 3 sites make word clouds in the shape of a heart:
Festisite flows text into a spiral heart
Scrapcoloring lets you type in short text and then fill it with a heart pattern you can also customize. You can also generate high resolution background paper in various heart patterns.
Says-It generates circular text and a heart border.
And the software you already may have also has some cool text tricks for you to try. If you want to flow paragraph text into a heart shape, for instance, it is quick and easy to do in Inkscape. My one minute video is here. (Instructions for doing this in MSWord, PowerPoint, etc. are here, but I had little success with them.)
And one more, custom candy hearts, classic, if too low rez to be very useful
Have fun and Happy Valentines Day!
