‘I Love You’ text collage

I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything on here in a while, but I am currently studying for a semester in Paris and so haven’t been able to do much crafting! This is what I made for my boyfriend’s Valentines gift this year – a text collage. I did it a while back to be super prepared, but didn’t want to post it before the day just in case Jake saw it!

This project was fairly time-consuming, as it involves trawling through magazines looking for the right letters in a variety of fonts and cutting them all out. I went for the simple phrase ‘love you’ to fit the occasion, but you could choose to do it with any words you fancied! Once you have found all the letters (try to get a mix of styles and colours for maximum effect), you can arrange them on the page and stick them down. I chose a simple black frame which compliments the text nicely and doesn’t detract from the words. Once it’s complete I think it’s a really bold and effective statement piece to be put on the wall! 🙂
