Default WT288 - Ransom Style (09/16/10)

Today's challenge is a unique one and I hope you'll love it. While I hope none of us have actually seen a ransom note, we all know what they are supposed to look like. The cut out letters from many different sources to piece together a message. It's a mix and match look that uses letters or words so it's hard to track down the source. Mix up your letters or words. Cut them out of a stamped sentiment, newsprint, chipboard letters or whatever you have on hand. The more random, the better the look. How about computer generating part of it? Make sure that it isn't all the same font or size. Mix it up and have some fun!

Please remember to put WT288 in your keywords and post a link back here. We'd all love to see your work!

My sample: Secret Admirer

WT288 Gallery Submissions


Thanks for playing along!

Enjoy the challenge and have a wonderful creative day,
Julia

Sounds like fun. I will try to squeeze it in somewhere before, between or most likely after my classes. Thanks, Julia.
