Anyone who's ever written and then deleted an angry or heartbroken text to a former love late at night (which is to say, everyone) will appreciate "The Unsent Project" -- maybe even enough to contribute! A collection of real text messages printed out and turned into beautiful images by artist and blogger Rora Blue, the series turns painful moments into something poignant and pretty -- not to mention perfect for Instagram.


Blue sent out a call for submissions with the following prompt:

State your first love's name, and type what you would say if you sent them a text message. Also, include the color that you think of when you think of your first love.

The responses she got are sure to strike a chord with literally every feeling human being, especially since Blue has such an eye for striking imagery. She also turns the submissions into stickers, which she posts in public. It's what people did before social media, kids!

Here, 10 of our favorites. (Check out Blue's Instagram for more!)
