We are talking about title tips and today, we are going big! We’re sharing two techniques for using the large alpha sticker for your titles.
Traci Reed: Outline Your Title to Make it Stand Out
I LOVE a good, BIG title. That’s why I always love when these large die cut letters are included in the Daisy Field Classified: Memory Keeping Kit.
For this layout, I knew I wanted to have my title be “Big Facts” at the bottom of my page with these letters.
When I put the letters down they were hard to see and didn’t really stand out from that busy background. To remedy this, I did two things to make them stand out.
First, I used rub ons from the kit to incorporate the background paper into the foreground by overlapping the flower onto my letters and photos. Second, I didn’t feel like that helped my letters stand out as much as I’d liked, so I used a black pen to trace around the letters which served two purposes: it made the letters stand out AND incorporated the foreground into the background by adding that same sketchy vibe that the flowers have!
Carol Weatherspoon: Muted Title for Colorful Photo
Titles are a big part of our layout and what could be better than using big letters for your title? I love the large die cut letters included with theDaisy Field Classified: Memory Keeping Kit! I had a super colorful photo that I wanted to use for this spread and the muted yellow letters worked perfectly to off-set all the color.
I added a few puffy sticker embellishments around my title to bring your eye to those words GIRL TRIP! Also, for a sub-title, I used patterned paper card from the Daisy Fields Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit and I just love the fonts used for that beautiful sentiment.
Again, your eye immediately goes to the sub-title on the right hand side of the spread.
Using what you already have is a great way to get lots of mileage out of your kits and take some of the pressure off of yourself when trying to come up witty or inspirational titles.
