Before I give the link to the freebie pictured above, I would like to say a few words about JOURNALING. I love journaling and I think that it, other than the photo itself, is the heart of any layout! I see so many layouts in the gallery without so much as a name, date or place on a tag! How can future generations know who is in the photos or when they were taken? Surely if you take the time to make a beautiful layout to enhance your photo you can take the time to say a few words for posterity! The other thing is font color. Many of the backgrounds we work with are dark colors or blends. I have seen a lot of layouts using BLACK for the journaling and it just doesn't show up well! I find myself squinting to try and read the journaling. I usually give up. There is nothing wrong with using white, cream or any other color if it makes your journaling readable! Most of my kits include journaling boxes and you should use them! They enhance your journaling and your layout! If a kit doesn't include a journaling box element then cut one out of a coordinating background. Also, if you must add a drop shadow to your text, make it a very small one! Most programs will allow you to adjust the size/depth. The words should not look like they are floating above the page.
OK, now HERE is the link to the above paper pack. This link will expire Friday, November 6th.
SORRY, THIS LINK HAS EXPIRED.
Next week I will begin giving some really pretty clustered frames that also coordinate with the above papers. They will be a blog exclusive and not be put up for sale in my store, so keep checking back so you don't miss any of them!
