Hello again everyone! Summer is just winding down over here in France (school doesn't start until the first week of September). I hope you have all had a great summer where ever you are! Today I want to talk a bit about my love of type. I think it is a love that is shared by many of my WCS team mates, and no doubt by many of you.
I tend to consider type as part of my page design when I am creating a layout, and I love nothing better than mixing different fonts. My favourite way of adding my titles, and even journaling is letter stickers. Any scrapbooking kits that contain at least two sets of letter stickers gets my vote! Here are some ways that you can play with type on your pages.
Title Work and an Embellishment
I used two different sizes of letter stickers for the title here, the larger red text emphasises the words "red footed" making them pop off the page. In addition I cut out a portion of a sheet of patterned paper that repeated the alphabet over and over, using a piece starting with the letter K for Kieran.
Title, Subtitle and Journaling Details
On this page about Kieran doing art on the floor I went to town with letter stickers. I wanted to convey a feeling of fun and anything goes, so chose a different colour and font for each of the four action words. Then I used yet another three fonts for subtitles and journaling details
The Title is the Main Element
This page was inspired by a poster that I saw online. That phrase just matched this photo perfectly! I used a bunch of different letter stickers to convey a fun feel, and added an addition detail with the strip of text paper below the photo.
So go ahead! Go grab that letter sticker stash (you know you have one!) and have some fun playing with type!
