Being away in college means that I've got lots of time to craft, yet no room for craft supplies. So recently I brought up a scalpel and a sketch pad with the hope of being creative!

Last September I made this, kinda just to practice a few techniques. My boyfriend had just introduced me to this song and the title really appealed to me. I'm a typography lover, I'm addicted to seeing things like lyrics visually...

I know it's really rough and the photo is just taken with my phone, but I'd just like to say about anyone thinking of doing this - DO IT! It's simple and really rewarding  Smiley

Here's the pic:

Thanks for reading all this,
have a lovely day

Such a cool idea, I love getting typographical signs from tumblr, printing them and popping them up on my noticeboard  Smiley
