Default Challenge No. 2 - TYPOGRAPHY December 2013

You know the old saying, "Opposites attract"? In design, opposites can set off elements and create balance. A subdued tone with a pop of color, two short candles with a tall one in the middle....using items that have contrast is a strong design technique. So this month, we are going to use that theory in our typography. Selecting fonts that are opposite of each other can set off our words and create balance in titlework and journaling. Pairing a skinny with a fat, a script with a san serif block, big with little, retro with modern, upper and lower, etc. If you need some font ideas to get you brainstorming, here are a few graphics to get you started.







And here's some inspiration from me and the team!

From me:


From Diane:


From Vera:


From Hieronique:


Rules:
* Include at least two lines of text with fonts that are opposite of each other. Make sure to credit your font and explain how they are opposite of each other.
*Use 80% Oscraps
*Upload your layout to the Challenge No. 2 gallery by midnight PST, December 31st, 2013 and link it back to this thread
*Don't forget to update your Challenge Tracking post
*HAVE FUN!!!

Remember to update your post in the monthly Tracking Thread to receive your credit for this challenge (link to new monthly thread).

Oh that's soooo pretty!! I love the contrast and the simplicity of it all. And I'm always glad to help rediscover fonts!!

I've always loved using typography this way, and, as are so many in DigiLand, am a font-a-holic!
