Here are five ways to use word art in your digital scrapbooking.
1. Use word art alone.
Let the words and the art define the page design. Here’s a greeting card that took me only a few minutes to create using word art and a pretty background paper. You could, of course, add an embellishment, but with art this charming, you don’t need to.
2. Create your title with word art.
Instead of having to think of a catchy title for your page, just browse through your word art stash. Simple!
3. Tell your story with word art.
There are several ways you can use word art to take the place of or supplement your own journaling. For example, use paper strips, or a word art quote, or fill a pocket with word art on your Project Life page. Remember, you can change the color or add a style to word art just as you can with other scrapbooking elements. Here, I used a silver style on the word art “Always.”
4. Use word art as a prompt that inspires your page.
Sometimes a layout can start with an intriguing piece of word art. When I saw this word art, I knew I had the perfect photo for it.
5. Embellish your page by using word art as a design element.
The shapes and fonts themselves add lovely embellishment to your page, and remember, you can change colors, Blending modes, size, and opacity to suit your layout. The word art in this sample provides both vertical and horizontal anchors for the photo.
