I made this layout for the Lily Bee-Gossamer Blue challenge (make a summertime layout).
I had a huge revelation with the title. I could picture what I wanted in my head?a handwritten-script title cut with my Silhouette, but I just couldn?t find a font. I made a comment to Husband about how I wished I had a tablet so that I could design some of my own word art? and then I realized I could? all I needed to do was write the words with a thick sharpie, scan them, and use the trace tool in the Silhouette. It was amazingly easy! I made a few adjustments to the traced image, and then I had exactly what I wanted. I cut it twice, once out of the patterned paper, and once out of white cardstock so that I could layer them and have the title show up better on the kraft background.
I wrote a lot about this layout on my blog: http://vegetablog.wordpress.com/2013/06/16/big-news-layout/ [vegetablog.wordpress.com]
