Default Challenge No 2 - TYPOGRAPHY

Perhaps it is the teacher/librarian in me, but I seem to be drawn to designs that have a dark background and white text - like a chalkboard - or white background with black text - like the pages in a book. The contrast speaks to the dramatic in me I guess and I especially love the combination with a formal looking page.

This month, I'm asking you to take your text and contrast it. Use a very dark background with very light text or vice versa. It doesn't have to be exactly black and white- I have a dark grey and a light grey- but they do have to be pretty dark and pretty light to create a drastic contrast.

Here is a sample from me:


And from the Cheery-O's:

This is Sandra's (sberkan):


From Vera:


And this hilarious one is from Chris (faerywings):



There you go! A study in contrast. Now get scrappin!

RULES:
  • Scrap a page where your text contrasts with your background.
  • You must use 80% Oscraps products.
  • Your page must be posted in the Number 2 Gallery by Sunday, August 31st and linked back to this thread. PLEASE INCLUDE THE LINK TO YOUR OSCRAPS GALLERY PAGE SO WE CAN LEAVE YOU SOME LOVE.
  • You must update the monthly tracking thread to be eligible for prizes.
  • HAVE FUN!
