Friday Tip: Underline that Title

I am really into grounded elements on a layout.  I think it is why I am so rigid with floating elements and freedom...although I realize I need that in order for work to be non-static.

So, how can I ground and yet have moment.  One tip involves underlining my title.  I often like to use mixed fonts, which works great with underlining.  It keeps a straight line versus the random sizing of the letters.

Underlining can be done with a pen or even with paper.
Little strips.

Here is a recent layout using the New Beginnings collection from Webster's Pages.  If you are looking for a sweet spring collection and one that works great for Easter...check this one out.

I love the pinks and greens in this collection.  I decided to add some curves using the oval Perfect Accent, the doilie and the hand cut Easter eggs.  I feel like my title would have been floating around so I put the yellow paper under it.  Gives it a bit of pop!

I used the blue and pink alphabet in different sizes and prints.  The Celebrate banner was cut from a sheet of paper.

Interest, and movement...yet grounded.

If only I spelled ninja right on the layout...ugh

happy day all!
