Altered and collage artists of the traditional cut and paste medium have long been familiar with the technique of cutting out text from books, magazines or newspapers and using small bits and pieces of words and phrases as a design element. While we have been using "word strips" in our digital designs for years now, they are usually created with contrived phrases that are common to scrapbooking. Poetic Cut-Ups are authentic snips of "found text", collected and organized into packages by theme.

Using a small, quirky selection of a sentence or random phrase as a starting point for an art piece can often stimulate the sub-conscious and inspire unique works of art that would not otherwise have been considered. Alternately, topping off a completed layout with an authentic cut-out word strip, may prove to be a very interesting, amusing or thought provoking journaling technique.

The Happy & Sad collection offers a random assortment and there are more than 50 unique phrases in this package. I hope they will inspire you. They were great fun to organize and put together.

Please note: Each phrase is provided as a separate file for you to use alone or in combination with each other as you choose. I have also included all of the phrases together as one single file, for convenience sake. Sometimes punctuation marks or bits and pieces of the rest of the sentence are still visible in the word strip. These have been intentionally kept in place to preserve the authenticity of the element.
