X is for Detox by kayne X is for Detox by kayne
I have had this idea in mind for a while, kinda a grown-up alphabet. These letters I found while going for a walk along Abany Hwy in Victoria Park, the suburb I live in. I think it is a good reflection of this approx. 1km strip of Vic Park. Kinda run down and in the process of being made more up market. I purposely went for the older, more textured letters. The yellow 'X' really is in the word detox.

Very creative idea, and well done. The letters are all so different, and will surely make me look twice at all the kinds of lettering around my home town.

I come back to this one again and again... I just love it. I have to find out if I faved it or not (if not.. it's getting one now). It's so original and creative and I love how it all flows together.

I know you could have easily found all these and more and of course as all these raves say it's very colourful and fun as well as interesting but no need to question the use of doubles (right). It reminds me of a magnet set I had as a child which was all coloured too though your pics at least change the style with each letter.
Do you do much of these sort of put togethers being readily sourced then utilised immediately with the same thought you began with before starting?
HUGZ all your pieces are intricate, beautiful and interesting. Kickass work

You chose great letters, very eclectic. The colors spread evenly across the piece, too. My favorite is "D"

yeah it's not really similar to my journal entries, except for the mosaic shape and the "alphabet theme"

it is excellent. How did you choose which letters to duplicate?

i especially like the bits that have a little of the letters they were next to showing. its like a tease. "i wonder what word that was in"

very fun!
