Creative Titles by Shannon Blinn

One of the most eye-catching features of a layout besides great photography is a great title. On this layout, I used the brand new farm line. I cut the word "chicken" from the sticker and added it to brown cardstock to make it stand out more. I then added some black dots with a sharpie marker. Because my other word was made of chipboard, I added pop dots to the back of the sticker word so that the title really stands out on the page. Add a little sizzix die cut with coordinating cardstock and a little mesh for effect and there you have it...a fun, eye-catching title. You can even do this with your journaling. Our stickers and papers are so much fun, that you can cut out words and elements from the stickers and paper to add a little extra to your title and journaling. If you'll notice...I even added a sticker BEHIND the letter "O". Subtle...but effective.

So let's see your creative titles!! Want to see this one up close and personal? It will be at CHA in Booth #2988.
