Playing with Alpha Stickers

Playing with Alpha Stickers

Today’s prompt was to use different size fonts, as inspired by children’s book design. Since there wasn’t a topic suggested, I went with a topic I’d thought about based on one of the earlier prompts: the books that made me a reader.

Between knowing this month’s Layout a Day challenge was about children’s books, and the fundraiser for the library in my childhood hometown, this story has been at the top of my head for weeks. Perhaps even months, since I also got the Oz themed paper from Graphic 45 with this story in mind.

The title consists of letters from three different sticker sets. They’re anchored on the washi border strips and outlined with black pen to help them be a little less overwhelmed by the patterns.

For those of you wondering which ideas for making this page can be found in The Beginner’s Guide to Scrapbooking, how about the design, a basic horizontal layout, with a bit of tilt to add some fun. Also, the stickers along the left hand side of the photo are not Oz related, or book related, or even childhood related. They’re from a set about collections and antiquing. That shows the idea of adapting specific themes to other topics.

PS If anyone wants to donate the library fundraiser (they need a new microfilm reader) you can find that here.
