I ran just across this online tool that allows you to turn pictures into works of "word art!" The website is called Tagxedo and with the holidays coming up I thought I would share for anyone that might be looking to make some personalized crafty goodies . It seems that this might be a great way to turn a few minutes into a really lovely gift for someone. They have a shop as well where you can get your creations put onto just about anything: t-shits, mugs, bags...
I played around with it for a few minutes this evening and here is my creation I made with my mother in mind (for this one I didn't upload my own photo, I just used one of their stock shapes):
Here is one of Frida Kahlo from their online gallery (I have not figured out exactly how you get them to look this cool though - if you do let me know! I love this one.)
If you make something and post it to your blog leave me the link in my comments section so I can come check it out!
