 You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the add-on sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.

Break out the Thesaurus, this month our add-on sketch is a word collage. The sketch has a love theme, but word collages can work with any theme. You can make this on your computer and print it out or you can construct it with alphabet stickers, word stickers, chipboard letters, or die cuts.

Tips: 
• Use a combination of different styles and sizes of letters.
• Having a Thesaurus on hand really helps to find words that fit your theme.
• Start with a larger word and then build around it with smaller words.
• Try making the collage on a piece of paper cut to the size you want the collage to be. This helps with getting the words lined up evenly.

Variations:
• Use an embellishment, a picture, or add your journaling in place of the largest word and build a collage of words above and below it.
• The sketch shows a 3" x 6" collage but you could easily make one that stretches across your whole project.
• Make a collage with words that stretch out further than the others.
• Add small details like brads, jewels, or stitching.
• Try making a horizontal word collage.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the first post of add-on week and to see the awesome projects the creative team has put together.

Bonus Download

This month we've got a bonus printout for the add-on. If you like the sketch collage as it is you can print out our color version of it to use on your projects.


You can find this color version of the sketch by clicking on the add-on sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar. 

Each day this week, I'll show you ways you can use the color printout of the sketch on several different projects.
