I’ve been inspired lately by Scrabble Art. I don’t have access to an extra scrabble game to use for pieced so I decided to do the next best thing and use digital tiles!
Here is what I came up with!
I had the hardest time finding scrabble games at any of the thrift stores. I am cheap and didn’t want to buy a brand new game. After the tornado, if a thrift store was still standing, all the games were sent off right away to all of those who lost everything. I am totally cool with that!
What I am also cool with, were what I found to replace them! These beauties!
Hi-Res Wooden Scrabble Tiles from fuzzimo.com.
I downloaded them and used the Quick Selection Tool in my PSE 9.0 to select each tile I needed. If I had duplicate letters, I just duplicated the layer instead of cutting/pasting again…that is tedious. I played with a few layouts on some scratch paper and then found one I liked the best and simply arranged!
I have a 5 x 7 on it’s way to me right now for a frame on top of our desk and I also thought these would be super cute on some notecards. Then if we want to mail a quick note to someone as a family these will be adorable!
I did a plain white background with a beveled edging, due to time constraints (nap time) and the fact I am a “Simple is Better” kind of gal, but I am sure you can add to this to make it your own. Maybe find a scrabble board background? That’d be cute! Or maybe add some shadows to the tiles to give them a more 3D look? I am not that skilled in PSE yet! Let me know if you make one of your own! I’d love to gawk at your creativeness!
I’ll try to update when I get it in a frame! I was just too excited and had to share now!
