Elephant Salad

Welcome to Thoughtful Thursday!  Today we are learning all about using mixed fonts in our titles to help tell our story.  Come visit us at Thinking*Through*Designs to see our thoughts on using fonts and type to help convey your story on your next work of he{art}

My thoughts on using mixed fonts: Laura’s thought: I’ve long been a fan of mixing fonts in my title!  First, I think it’s just fun!  Secondly, it does help to tell the story at times.  I picked these grey letters for my word “elephant” because they are the color of elephants and they had a great texture that reminded me of the wrinkly skin.  I chose green for the word “salad” because, well, salad is green.  I often use larger and smaller letters to signify the importance of a word in my title.

Neat! Love how you added the green into your layout to compliment your photos and emphasize the theme/title. Great idea!
