Default Challenge #1 - Typography - February 2016



Last month, Rita (Blue Flower Art) hosted a Designer Challenge where she had scrappers add a ligature to their type. That got me thinking about all the different ways we can "enhance" our type on our layouts. There are lots of other things you can "add" to your font.

Here are a few ideas:
• Add a symbol or dingbat as the dot in a letter or in the open space of a letter or even as a replacement for a letter
• Add a second layer of your type in a slightly different style under/over your existing layer
• Add a treatment effect to your type
• Add a photo over one or more letters
• Add a paper over your font
• Add a second font behind your first layer
• Add ligatures or other "flourishes" to your type
• And lots more that I haven't thought of!

So for this month, I want you to get creative with your type and ADD something to it! On my layout, I added a snowflake as the dot of my letter i.



Here are a few more examples from the Cheery-Os.

I LOVE this challenge. As a font addict (I'm PROBABLY not the only one here...hehehe), I adore this sort of thing, and yet, don't do it often enough. Thanks. Can't wait to jump in.

Hope this is what you're after, Sara. Was finished this page but when I saw your challenge decided to delete my title and have a play. Thank you for the inspiration.

I saw this video while browsing and thought, at the time, that it would be fun to try. It was.
