I'm thinking I've seen this before, but when I looked on the internet to see if I could make something like this, I couldn't find anything useful. I concluded that you need special software to achieve this wonderful application.
However, in my search, I did come across a site called Neoformix where I discovered this called Word Hearts in celebration of Valentine's Day.
In short, this is a simple tool that automatically fills a heart shape with any words you like. In my case, I used my name, Gail, my hubby's name, Gerald, my son's name, Adam and the words Love, Hearts and Valentine. All I had to do was enter the words separated by commas in the text box and press the "enter" key. I could also choose one of three fonts or change the colors.
This is a really cool application! The only problem is there is no built-in method to save the image that you create. Neoformix offers many different tools that can be used to save what you created and then you can paste it into any image editing program to crop, save or print.
I'll walk you through what I had to do. To begin with, this application requires java to run, so you will have to download java if you don't have it.
After entering all the words I wanted to use and hitting enter, the following is what came up:
Next, I hit the "Print SCRN" (screen) button and then pulled up my "The Print Shop" program that I've been using for a number of years. I have Microsoft Office Word and Powerpoint, but I couldn't figure out how to use this on them. Using a blank page, I hit "Contol V", and the above image came up. The Print Shop has a feature called "Advanced Photo Editor" which I used next. I was able to crop, resize and save the valentine image exactly how I wanted it to look.
There were so many options to use with the photo editor. I was even able to do an "embossed" look for the valentine.
I love word art! It can become so personal. I was able to print out my hearts and put them into frames for Valentines.
Makes for a lovely Valentine's gift, too!
Until next time,
Take a little time to enjoy!
