Make a Wordle!

my blog Amarettogirl's Wordle One of my students just taught me what 'Word Clouds' are and they introduced me to Wordle. Now I'm hooked!

A word cloud scans a body of text (or a blog or website) for key/repetitive words and pulls them, then it arranges them in a funky layout. You can modify font, layout stye and color palette. If you're a blogger (or not) try it it you'll like it...also imagine doing it with a poem or interviews or anything! Its a fantastic graphic design toy!

If you make a wordle because of this post- leave me a link to it in my comments so that I can see it!

This looks great and I'll be sure to check it out.

I haven't been spending much time online these days, been busy and have a bit of a cold, but after seeing your comment I didn't want to reply any later.

Your glass work looks great, I always find glass really intriguing. Glassblowing seems great and I can never stop looking at gorgeous glass beads, but glass drawings was something I'd never seen before. It is amazing! I love your selfportrait! And that heart headed woman is really cool. I also love "Lone Among Many", basically I love them all.

Oh and I voted on the applique.

I will post some of my own art soon. The painting and maybe some things I made during the course.

Have a great weekend!

P.S. Thank you for telling me about the giveaway, I'm sorry I missed it, and I don't have facebook :( Next time :D
