DIY : Lyric Art

Sunday, March 02, 2014
So, Alicia Keys's "Girl On Fire" has been running through my mind for a long time now, and I was planning to get a lyric art done so, I was tapping my pen on the table top one fine day and Viola! this occurred to me! LOL. Okay, a little dramatic there. Anyway, this DIY is really easy and a little unusual and VERY affordable. 

This is how it's gonna look like after it's done if not better. Trust me, patience is not one of my virtue so I just do everything in a rush! :P


Firstly, write down the lyrics that you wanna work with in a white sheet and fill it with black.



Next, rip pieces off you old magazine, (I think it'll look really cool with newspaper too, gotta try that one!) and cover ANOTHER white sheet with the pieces. Yes, I could have used the word "COLLAGE". But, that's just my way. :P



Don't worry about the uneven corners. I like them that way, if you in case suffer from OCD then, you are most welcome to trim the corners off and make a perfect rectangle.



Using a pencil, mark the outline of the words you wrote. Make sure to seperate EACH WORD and not go alphabet-wise and also, leave out considerable amount of white space from the border because we'll have a colorful background, we need our writing to POP OUT and only black letters won't do that. 


I always find it easier to cut out the word roughly and then, start with the complicated cutting parts.


When you are done, you end up with words that look like this. :P





Then, just stick them one to the collage background and Ta-da!!

Let me know if you liked this DIY and also share with me if in case you have so other DIYs that you'd like me to do.
