A fascinating website any art intrigued person should know is www.wordle.net. Wordle is a tool that lets you create custom word clouds. I love going on here because you can copy and paste stories or lyrics from the internet, or you can type in your own words to make fabulous works of art. What you do is click the ‘Create’ button on the home page. Once your text is all in the box, you click ‘create’ and then you can customize your word cloud with custom colors and fonts. You can save it to the gallery, or print it and hang it in you room or locker! I think this is great site where you can express yourself. I’ve seen wordles about bible verses, places, songs, television shows, and people even make ones about themselves! Check out this site, because it will really get your creative juices flowing.
