Default Inspired by Type Challenge



I am starting a regular typography challenge post and I hope that you will join me with the challenges. Each month, I will attempt to show you different and creative ways to incorporate alphas, fonts and type into your layouts.

This month, we'll look at colour and type. How to express an idea with colour.

Your challenge is to pick a font and colour each letter to express the emotion you wish to convey. It could be fun and light hearted or if you are expressing other moods, make them dark and moody. You may use an alpha or several alphas to achieve this effect. If you are using a font, you can use the colour picker or eye dropper tool to select the colours from the kit or photo.

As an example, I found these vintage ads at http://www.vintageadbrowser.com/







Here is my layout. I wanted to show the mischievous nature of my kitten. I used Blue Flower Art Lady of Leisure to make it.The font that I used for the main title is called Planet Benson 2 and available at http://www.dafont.com/planet-benson.font




The rules
All layouts must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. PST on Thursday, June 30, 2015. All participants will be entered into a draw and two participants will be chosen to receive a $5 coupon to Blue Flower Art shop.

Challenge rules apply:
- Please use 100% Oscraps products and some Blue Flower Art products
- Post your layout in Blue Flower Art designer gallery
- Post your layout in this thread and link back to the gallery LO so that we can leave you some love in the gallery
- but most of all, have fun

Mimisgirl!! I love that. I love how you've matched the colours of the font and put a pop of colour in there.
