One of my favorite components of the monthly Happy Mail delivery from A Beautiful Mess that I receive is the piece of typography artwork included in the delivery. Sometimes big and sometimes small, the artwork tends to be minimal on the background design and heavy on the quotes and calls to action printed on them. I display them at home and in my office; it’s safe to say I’m going to run out of wall space soon!
A Beautiful Mess isn’t the only company that knows a good trend. Paper Source offers several art prints that are all about the words as well. If you love this type of artwork, but have your own phrase in mind, it doesn’t take much to customize this idea for your home. The background design is up to you (you can take a cue from me and spend some time with a set of watercolor paints), but it’s rub-on gold foil transfer letters that turn your favorite quote into art. Take a look at the scrapbook aisle of your local craft store to find a variety of fonts, sizes and styles to make your finished piece one of a kind.
